Apex is located in the state of North Carolina and a town in Wake County. The town has been encompassing the community of Friendship at its southern part of the border. The downtown area has been designated as a historic district in 1994, and the train depot that was built in 1867 was a landmark that was designated by Wake County. The location of the depot serves as the highest point of the Old Chatham Railroad, wherein the town was named after. The area was inhabited by the Tuscarora Indians even before the first settlers discovered it. At the start of the 19th century, a small community was established and was developed around the railroad station. The establishment of the railroad in the area opened Apex’s door to the state capital and became a trading center in the region. Like much of central North Carolina, the city is a hotspot for relocation thanks to mild winters, low property taxes, and an excellent school system. While Apex firmly honors its past, it has also created a dynamic, active community filled with things to do. Enjoy beautiful artwork and a small-town theater Halle Cultural Arts Center, ride restored historic steam engines at the North Carolina Railroad Museum, and join festivals like the annual Peak Fest, the Apex Music Festival after sampling local cuisine. The amazing lifestyle offered by Apex has earned it the “Best Place to Live in America” distinction from MONEY magazine, and indeed, the city remains one of the top-selling choices for homebuyers in North Carolina.
