They offer boat storage, boat sales, parts, and a boat ramp for you to unload your boat or jet ski for a day of fun on the Intra Coastal Waterway.

Waterway Estates is in the much desired Hickory School district. Hickory High School was established in 1996. With the Hawk as their mascot, there are currently over 1900 Hickory Hawks. Hickory High School offers more than 50 student clubs ranging from the dance team to the literary magazine.

The high quality homes of Waterway Estates was developed in 1979, where once stood an old two story yellow house on a small hill and a strawberry field next to a tire swing. That house was once in the family of John W. Keffer. Several of his children rented this house from him over the years when they were first starting out. Eventually, the house was torn down, and Waterway Estates was developed with the help of his sons.. -Where again, several of his children have lived, and one of them still resides in Waterway.

    1979? wow it seems like longer ago than that! Time sure does have a way of playing tricks on you. I remember when everything was just a bunch of fields around there with that little store and restuarant on the corner. Been awhile!
