Your New Home in Apex, NC
The Town of Apex, North Carolina—first settled in the 1860s and incorporated in 1873—was one of the earliest new towns to develop around the state capital of Raleigh, as railroads traversed the county after the Civil War. The name “Apex” was adopted because the community was the highest point on the Chatham Railroad between Richmond and Jacksonville, Florida. The current town motto — “Apex, the Peak of Good Living” not only captures the name’s historical significance, but refers to the fact that in places along the town’s main street (Salem Street), water which falls on one side of the street flows to the Neuse River, and on the other side it flows to the Cape Fear River.
