Located in the easternmost part of Wake County, Zebulon is a small community of about 4,433 residents as of the 2010 Census.

This community was first recognized in 1907, taking its name from Zebulon Baird Vance, the governor of North Carolina during the Civil War. During that same year, the town held its first election, in which Thomas Horton was elected mayor. Later, this Wake County community would annex neighboring Wakefield to increase its size.

Today, Zebulon is a part of the larger Research Triangle region. It’s also home to Five County Stadium, which hosts the Carolina Mudcats minor league baseball team.

It features a number of major corporations in the community, such as GlaxoSmithKline and US Food Services.
