The tiny half-mile wide village of Martinsville at 440 residents serves as a great country setting for many who commute to Wilmington to work each day. If you like neighbors nearby but not just yards away, this village is for you. The quite country surroundings allow you room for gardening, farming, and outdoor pursuits. The Society of Friends, the Quakers, hold The Newberry Monthly Meeting in Martinsville.
The present meeting house built in 1883, is also popular with genealogists, who research the large Quaker graveyard behind the meeting house.
