Bald Head Island is an island (also known as Smith Island) and village located on the east side of the Cape Fear River in Brunswick County, North Carolina, United States. Compared to the city of Wilmington to the north, the village of Bald Head Island is small and somewhat remote. It is only accessible by ferry from the nearby town of Southport. Cars are not allowed; instead residents drive modified electric golf carts. The village is revered for its picturesque nature and is a popular location for retirement. It was the primary filming location for the successful film Weekend at Bernie’s in 1989, as well as being a major location in The Butcher’s Wife in 1991. “Old Baldy”, its out-of-service lighthouse, is the oldest still standing in the state, built in 1817. It is part of the Wilmington Metropolitan Statistical Area. (http://wikipedia.com.)
