Living in Garner, NC

Garner was created in 1847 when the North Carolina Railroad was built through the area. Garner was chosen as the location for a new station between Charlotte and Goldsboro, North Carolina. As a "wood and water" stop, the Garner Station prospered, leading the Town of Garner to be officially incorporated in 1905. No one is really sure how Garner got its name, but many theories have been proposed over the years.

In 1911, the first paved road built in North Carolina connected Garner with nearby Raleigh. The Central Highway allowed Garner to transform from a sleepy railroad town into a bustling business environment. Before the turn of the century, tobacco and cotton crops were the main source of income for Garner residents, but now the economic landscape was dotted with small businesses that helped keep residents working in the local community. General stores, cotton gins, blacksmiths, repair shops and barber shops joined the area soon after. Today, Garner is a lucrative town that has experienced increased population and residential growth throughout the 20th and 21st centuries. The diverse community, thriving business economy and beautiful neighborhoods make the area a perfect place to raise a family, keeping Garner rentals in high demand.
