Court Street

Liberty destination in Jacksonville, NC for Marines from Camp Lejeune, Camp Geiger and MCAS New River. (background) Until the 1980s the street was populated with bars, pawn shops and the bus station.

    The most famous bar on Court Street in J’Ville in the early 1960s was named Jazzland. The Band that headlined JazzLand was called Paul Peak and his Peakaboos. The lead singer was named Peaches. How bout the term ” Vomit Comet ” in your dictionary. The Vomit Comet was named after the bus that transported Marines from the Bus Station in J’Ville to the Bus Station at Camp Lejeune.
