Apex Information and Highlights

Apex is the name of a town located in Wake County, North Carolina. It is primarily a suburb belonging to Raleigh, and the estimated town population recorded by the US Census Bureau as of July 2014 is nearly 44,000. An interesting fact about Apex is that it was ranked #1 by TIME Magazine in August 2015 on the list of top places to live in the US.


The suburb of Apex became incorporated in the year 1873. It was named because of having its location as the highest point on an area of the Chatham Railroad. This ultimately extends between Jacksonville, FL and Richmond, VA. The town grew gradually through its succeeding decades, even though it underwent several disasters such as devastating fires, such as the conflagration in June 1911 that destroyed many of the business district located downtown.

The town center had to be rebuilt afterwards and it still stands to this date, being among the most intact railroad districts in North Carolina now. At the heart of this area is the Apex Union Depot which was a passenger station originally for the Seaboard air Line Railroad. It was also home of the Apex Community Library later on, which was locally supported. Currently, the depot houses the town’s Chamber of Commerce.
