What is Fort Caswell?

Tucked away on the eastern tip of Oak Island, the North Carolina Baptist Assembly at Fort Caswell occupies the site of a former Civil War fort. Since 1949, when the Baptist State Convention bought the property from the federal government, Caswell has been an instrument of peace, offering guests a place of quiet reflection and relaxation. We invite you to come and visit us here at Caswell and discover the peace and beauty that thousands of others have enjoyed.

Our Mission

The North Carolina Baptist Assembly is owned and operated by the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina and was founded to provide a facility for programs, activities, and retreats of the Baptist State Convention, Associations, Churches, Agencies, and Institutions of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina.

Today, we welcome guests from other denominations, non-profits, schools, universities and community organizations as space and scheduling allow.
