    Nestled between Durham and Greensboro, just in the outskirts of Burlington, the City of Mebane is a charming community that offers a genuine small-town feel with the benefits of being close to North Carolina’s biggest cities. It’s a community you’ll quickly fall in love with once you begin to explore all it offers.

    Mebane began simply when a post office was established there in 1809. It wasn’t until the railroad joined the city nearly 50 years later that it began to grow large enough to be granted a charter. That finally happened in 1881 with the town’s industrial growth from White Furniture Company and its tobacco production. It grew from a 200-person town to where it is today: a city of 14,000 residents in a vibrant and thriving community.

    While the bigger cities are a short drive away, you may rarely want to stray from this quaint community. Downtown Mebane’s main street is filled with delicious cafes and restaurants, unique boutiques and antique shops, and it is home to a summertime music series you’ll love. The city also hosts regular events for the entire family, like the annual 4th of July parade and events like Autumn Fest and the Dogwood Festival. And the community is home to Tanger Outlets for all of the major shopping you’ll need.

    History runs deep in Mebane, too. The downtown business district has monthly events that are designed to revitalize, preserve, and enhance the historic area. And its Historical Museum provides insights into the city’s past, home tours, exhibits, and more. Mebane offers the perfect small-town experience, especially for history buffs.

    Mebane has enjoyed recent growth as the entire Piedmont area expands. From historic homes to new single-family neighborhoods and golf course communities, you’ll find the right home for your needs. And in a close-knit community like Mebane, you’ll immediately have instant friends within your neighborhood. Whether you’re a retiree, a small family, or a single professional, you can have the best of both worlds: the small-town feel with all of the big city amenities just down the road
