Leland NC is a town located in Brunswick County, North Carolina in the United States. It sits close to the Brunswick River and the city of Wilmington.

For a long time, Leland NC was a small township with small communities in it and around it.

Before Cape Fear River came about, a bridge was built during 1890 which is still there until this day.
