WATER SYTEM REPAIRS
Electricity went out in Port Royal the morning of Friday, March 20; and the water system then went down. First call noticing this was at about 2:30 am. By 5:00 am, I began sending messages by email and text to Caroline County Utility Department. At a relatively decent hour of about 7am, phone calls were made.
By 7:30, the Director of Caroline County Utilities had a crew dispatched to fix the problem. That is a very fast and responsive service, at that early in the morning.
However, there must be a better solution. The following actions result in solutions now and solutions in process:
Overall, it was a very productive morning of work and accomplishment at a time most people were sleeping. The Town is very responsive and proactive.

Make Port Royal your Destination
Port Royal was first settled in 1652 and was chartered in 1744.
Tradition says that Port Royal was named after the Roy Family.
John and Dorothy Roy owned a warehouse chartered by the crown, a ferry service and a tavern.
Dorothy Roy was the first woman entrepreneur in the colonies.
These chimneys are all that remain of the Roy House.
The Municipal Pier is located at the bottom of King Street. The Pier hosts an annual Kids Fishing Day where kids are invited to come and learn from some of the town's old salts......they learn basic fishing tips, like how to tie a hook on their line, or tie a knot, but more importantly, they learn how to fish, they enjoy comradeship. They disconnect from electronics and enjoy nature. The Rappahannock Is a beautiful river. We are happy to share our little piece of it.
Port Royal is proud of our our heritage and we honor those who have served to ensure our freedoms as we know them today.
A Memorial proudly stands on town green as a solemn reminder to those of us who have family that have served. Bricks have been laid to honor family members either presently serving or who are no longer with us. Some of our bricks are in remembrance of loved ones dating back to 1672.
If you are interested in purchasing a brick please contact the town office.
Come and shop at one of our three antique stores. Each individually unique in their own way. Many treasurers await your visit.
Horne's Restaurant, an icon of the town offers not only fine cuisine, but a gift shop filled with interesting gifts and old fashioned trinkets to remind you of your visit to Port Royal.....
