Before the neighborhoods and local breweries took root, the Fuquay-Varina area was home to two towns: Fuquay Springs (incorporated in 1909 around Main Street) and Varina (formed around the railroad line on Broad Street). The two communities merged in 1963 into what we now know as Fuquay-Varina. Though modern-day Fuquay-Varina has grown tremendously, the small-town heritage and distinct downtown districts of the former towns remain.
In Fuquay-Varina, the camaraderie of a rural community meets the advantages of a city suburb. Locally owned shops, restaurants, and businesses thrive in the downtown area. A two-room schoolhouse and local artifacts are on display at the Fuquay-Varina Museum Complex. Modern additions to Fuquay-Varina’s lifestyle include the WRAL Freedom Balloon Festival, the Fuquay-Varina Community Center, and amenity-rich residential neighborhoods.
Like many other Raleigh suburbs, Fuquay-Varina is close to Downtown Raleigh and Research Triangle Park, features desirable neighborhoods, and has ample community festivals. However, this town has just the right blend of history and modern amenities to make it the perfect place to live.
