Come spend the weekend with Caroline!

Templeville

Because of its many free black households and sympathetic Irish immigrants, Templeville was once known as a safe haven for Underground Railroad escapees. On July 3, 1863, native son Sergeant William Poor of Templeville fought alongside 300 Caroline soldiers in the Union Army’s First Eastern Shore Regiment at Culp’s Hill at the Battle of Gettysburg. The Confederate soldiers included William Hardcastle, a descendent of Thomas Hardcastle of “Castle Hall” near Goldsboro.
