Onslow is one of North Carolina's oldest counties, and its past reflects a rich and varied history. It was named for the Honorable Arthur Onslow, who served for many years as speaker of the British House of Commons. Early settlements in the area occurred along the fertile waterways of Bear Creek and the White Oak and New Rivers.

Swansboro, a picturesque village and port located at the mouth of the White Oak River, is listed on the national register of Historic Places. The town has a rich maritime history which spans Colonial and Civil War eras. Unique shops and original homes have been restored to preserve this history. Bicentennial Park on the waterfront features a statue of local hero, Otway Burns, a privateer and builder of the first steamboat constructed in North Carolina.

Holly Ridge and Topsail Island played an important role in the development of modern jet propulsion in the 1940's. Holly Ridge was the site of Camp Davis, headquarters for "Operation Bumblebee," the program that pioneered technology for the ramjet and missile guidance systems.
