Garner got its 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.
Farming cotton was the main source of income for the early settlers of Garner and nearby areas. Before the turn of the century the town was soon bustling with many businesses including a fine cabinet maker, mercantile, drug store and eventually a Doctors Office. Garner continued to grow steadily throughout the years, with more rapid growth in recent times. Today, the Downtown Garner Historic District, Edenwood, and Meadowbrook Country Club are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Today Garner has an estimated population of 28K and it’s original 4.6 sq. miles has grown to 14.8 sq. miles. Garner is part of the Wake County Public School System and home to about 12 public and 3 private schools.
