During the Revolutionary War, the British maintained a garrison at Fort Johnson near Wilmington.

Incorporation

Recently, there has become a large movement among the residence to incorporate Castle Hayne[3] to become the "Town of Castle Hayne". The concern that the Wilmington, North Carolina will encroach upon the small, but rich with local history, area has prompted the incorporation momentum since they cannot incorporate once within 5 miles of Wilmington, North Carolina. The recent forced annexation of Monkey Junction [4] and proposed forced annexation of Ogden[5] by Wilmington has led to numerous lawsuits and appeals and demonstrates the urgency of this intention. The current proposal would incorporate Castle Hayne by July 2011. A previous attempt to incorporate in 1995 did not reach a referendum. As of August 26, 2010- Castle Hayne has a interim mayor of Tom Radewicz.
