Small-Town Feel, Big-City Conveniences

As its name might suggest, this Wake County town was actually formed in 1963 by the combination of two separate towns: Fuquay Springs and Varina. The community has seen fairly regular growth during its history, primarily because of its tobacco trade and agriculture early on. However, in later decades, the community’s real estate development and proximity to Research Triangle Park helped it to continue to grow. Today, this 12.2-square-mile community still honors a lot of its history with such historical sites as Fuquay-Varina Woman’s Club Clubhouse, Jones-Jonson-Ballentine Historic Distrct and Wayland H. and Mamie Burt Stevens House.
