Sneads Ferry Real Estate & Community Information

Sneads Ferry Real Estate & Community Information

Sneads Ferry is located in Onslow County and considered a census-designated place. It is just behind Jacksonville as being the 2nd largest municipality in the county. The area has grown since 2000 due to the accessibility to Camp Lejeune and the expansion of the US Marine Corps Special Operations Command.

The history of Sneeds Ferry can be traced back to 1728, when a ferry was established by Edmund Ennett on the banks of the New River, originally called Ennett's Ferry. Two ferries eventually operated there, one from each bank of the river. Sneed Ferry heavily depends on the seafood industry and holds an annual Shrimp Festival in honor of that fact.
