History[edit]

The larger lots arrived in the 1970s and expanded in the northern portion of Castlemore in the 1980s. Large lots still continued until the 2000s. In 1996, Castlemore was connected with Rutherford, the construction took several months between March and June, in 1997, a road linking Bolton and Highway 7 (then Highway 50) expanded. In 2001, the southwestern portion near Springdale expanded and south of Castlemore since 2002 continues with smaller lots, in 2004.

A portion of the luxury homes are around Alloa. A small industrial building is at Cadetta and in the 2000s added Sears east of Castlemore. In 2004, the Chateaus began between Mayfield and Countryside and Goreway. The luxury homes are between Airport and Goreway and the Gore and Castlemore Road and Mayfield.
