Welcome!

Town of Cary sign

The Town of Cary is located in Wake County between the capital city of Raleigh and the town of Morrisville, North Carolina.

Cary began in 1750 as a settlement called Bradford’s Ordinary. In 1854, the arrival of the North Carolina Railroad placed Bradford’s Ordinary on a major transportation route. North Carolina railroads had formed a junction in Cary and on April 6, 1871, the Town of Cary was incorporated.

Allison Francis Page has been credited with founding the Town of Cary and naming the town after Samuel Fenton Cary, a former Ohio congressman he admired. Page was a railroad agent, town developer, first postmaster and the first mayor of Cary. In 1868, Page built a hotel to serve railroad passengers traveling through Cary. This hotel is now the Page-Walker Arts & History Center.

Asbury Station Chapter

The Asbury Station Chapter was named for an early train station in the vicinity of Asbury Chapel located about two miles east of Cary. Asbury Chapel was named for Bishop Francis Asbury whose active ministry included the revolutionary period.
