For many years it was a small quiet town, even in the early 1990’s there were only around 900 residents. But the area has boomed and that number grew to 29,000 by 2013 covering an area of approximately 15 miles. One reason for the growth is that it is just 18 miles from the renowned Research Triangle Park, one of the largest research parks in the world.
