In the early 1900s, America relied on the railroad for its business and pleasure travel. Zebulon was born in 1906 to fill such a need.
The Raleigh and Pamlico Sound Railroad Company recognized the need to connect the capital of Raleigh further east, towards tobacco country. They built tracks through a dense pine forest between two family farms. That same year, the Zebulon Company received its charter when Raleigh developer Edgar B. Barbee teamed up with local resident Falconer B. Arendell to organize the area for development. The two purchased 49 acres along the tracks and carved out the bones of a new city.
On February 16, 1907 the Town of Zebulon was officially recognized. It was named after Zebulon Baird Vance, a popular North Carolina Governor during the Civil War. The first election in 1907 put Thomas J. Horton in the mayor’s seat, surrounded by a council of commissioners.
By 1910, Zebulon had 483 residents and was the most populous township outside of Raleigh. During the 1920’s the town grew to almost 1,000 people and boasted five tobacco warehouses, three cotton buyers, one cotton knitting mill, two banks, and 14 stores. It was a significant trade center with a downtown business district reflective of early 20th century prosperity.
Expanding again in the past decade, Zebulon’s population has more than doubled since 1970. Yet while the city feeds off of Raleigh’s growth, it maintains its small-town feel. It’s appropriately dubbed “The Town of Friendly People.”
