Castle Hayne Homes

Many folks don't know the history about the name of the town because the actual castle burned to the ground in the 1800's.

"Actually, Castle Hayne was named for a plantation by the name of Castle Haynes which was there in the 18th Century," said historical librarian Beverly Tetterton.

In 1731, Captain Roger Haynes paid 150 pounds of sterling silver for 1000 acres of land on the northeast branch of the Cape Fear River.

Over the next couple of years, he built a massive Georgian plantation home, which he called his castle.  Legend says Haynes was stricken with a delirium fever, woke up, ran to the river to cool off, and drowned.

Haynes' legend and namesake live on as another family member, John Burgwin, used the profits of the plantation to build his legacy house in downtown Wilmington.

In 1904, Hugh MacRae started Wilmington's first bedroom community, recruiting Dutch immigrants to settle and farm near the new Wilmington and Weldon Railroad Depot, bearing the name Castle Hayne.

Though it's not obvious how Castle Haynes dropped the ‘s', but it stuck just like the Dutch.  To this day the area remains a producer of produce. Reported by Colin Hackman, WECT
