Havelock, located in Craven County, population approximately 23,000, is known as the “Gateway City” to the Crystal Coast of eastern N.C. The area had permanent population sites as early as 1707and during the Civil War the Union forces used Havelock as the starting point for the capture of New Bern and Fort Macon.
The production of tar and turpentine had a greater effect on the area than farming. Later, in the early 1900’s, there were stories of local pockets of “moonshine”. Today Havelock offers a home to several military and civilian service families that serve and support the various branches of our military. We are proud to support those who protect us and are privileged to call them friends and neighbors.
