The Citizens of Denton and Caroline County Honor Two Native Sons
— Sherman W. Tribbitt, Governor of Delaware, 1973; Harry Roe Hughes, Governor of Maryland, 1979-1987 —Less than a block in both directions from this site, two young men from this small town grew up as Depression-era neighbors, competed in sports, later entered public service, and rose to the highest elective office in the neighboring states of Delaware and Maryland. This unique story of success may be unmatched by any other town of this size.
