Garner got it’s start in 1947 as “Garner Station”, a main stop between Goldsboro and Charlotte along the NC Railroad. The Garner Station Post Office was constructed in 1878 and the town was incorporated in 1883. Garner was connected with the city of Raleigh by a Holloman’s Road, a typical country road at the time, unpaved until around 1918. Around 1920, the road became known as NC 10, and later as US 70. NC 10 was the first paved road to be built in the state and was financed by the first bonds sold by the state to build highways.
