Area Information for Holly Springs, North Carolina

This community is often regarded as “The fastest growing town in North Carolina,” thanks to its rapid growth in recent years. Despite the fact that more and more residents have become familiar with the Holly Springs community in recent years, this community has actually been around since the colonial era. The town was named because of all the holly trees that grew around the freshwater springs in this southern Wake County community. The land was originally inhabited by the Tuscarora Indians and was later developed as the crossroads between two major roads. In recent years, the town has seen rapid population growth – along with the rest of the Triangle area.  Between 1990 and 2010, the population grew from less than 1,000 to about 22,000! The town has worked hard to balance this rapid growth by increasing municipal services accordingly. And as the town’s own website says, “Hardly a weekend passes without a Town-sponsored family activity in a local park or downtown, whether it’s a free movie or concert during the warmer months or a seasonal event such as the annual Easter Egg Hunt or the Happy Holly Days Parade.”

This strong sense of community serves as a major draw for interested home buyers.
