History of Mebane Today’s Mebane lies just off of Interstate I-85/40, conveniently centered mid-way between the Triad and Triangle. With easy access to North Carolina’s mountains as well as its coast, Mebane has been steadily attracting new businesses, homes, and people into its community in recent decades. In fact, Mebane is one of the fastest growing areas in North Carolina, according to recent projections. According to the 2010 census report, the city has undergone a growth rate of 54.6 percent in the last decade. The population is just over 17,000 within city limits, an area that is 7.7 square miles. The population is projected to double once again in the next 15 years or so, according to recent data. The current property tax rate is 47 cents per $100 valuation, making Mebane an attractive place for the housing market. The City has plenty of water and sewer services with a strong infrastructure of public works, police, fire, and recreational services. The City enjoys a strong fiscal reserve with over $10 million in its fund balance, and was recently upgraded from a AA bond rating by Standard & Poor, an American financial services company, to an AA+ bond rating. The Mebane City Council brings a wide range of experience to local town planning including military service, fire service, law, business ownership, sales, and construction. The S & P report listed the leading employers in the industrial and manufacturing base, including Mebane’s international Industrial Park, along with Tanger Outlets, GKN Automotive Components, MeadWestvaco Healthcare Packaging, AKG of America, and General Electric. In 2016, Walmart opened a distribution center on the south side of town, which has delivered hundreds of good-paying jobs to the area. Growth also lies to Mebane’s east, in Orange County, and in the Hawfields Economic Zone. The Mebane Arts and Community Center and Recreation and Parks program is a crown jewel for the city, drawing people in and offering huge benefits in the areas of the arts, entertainment, and sports. Mebane has recently built two new fire stations in the past decade, new soccer fields, a Veteran’s Garden, established walking trails, improved sidewalks, renovated City Hall, helped fund the Mebane Historical Museum, made use of a model train collection for public viewing, built a new public library, and has continued its revitalization and beautification projects throughout the city. The rehabilitation project that took the once-vacant White Furniture Building and turned it into hundreds of lofts has earned the City and the project’s planners recognition and awards. 6

The Mebane Community Park begins at the far west end of Clay Street, which was recently recognized by North Carolina Great Places as a “Great Main Street in the Making.” Though Mebanites have long since recognized Clay Street as a great street, period.

Early History The early history of Mebane did not begin with development along the interstate. Like thousands of small towns across America, Mebane grew because of the railroad. The town’s humble beginnings began around 1809 when a post office was built. In 1855, the railroad arrived, and Mebane was incorporated and granted a charter in 1881 as the town of Mebanesville, a nod to Brigadier General Alexander Mebane of the North Carolina Militia, who was also a member of Congress in the 1790’s. The name was officially changed to Mebane in 1883. The charter was amended to the City of Mebane in February 1987. The first public water supply and wastewater treatment facilities were constructed in 1921, and Lake Michael was completed in 1953. Mebane no longer uses Lake Michael as its primary water source, but the lake has instead become a major recreation site. Mebane’s first government meetings were held in a drugstore. Early government consisted of a mayor and four town commissioners. Stephen A. White became the first mayor of the town in 1881. The first recorded town meeting was held on May 8, 1882 and was called by mayor-elect W. H. Lashley. The first board of town commissioners included S. A. White, W. O. Fowler, J. F. Trollinger, and D. A. White. D. A. White was the first secretary and treasurer. The first paving of streets, curbing and guttering were done in 1922, and the town’s first sidewalks were laid. During that same year, W. T. Dillard organized the first volunteer fire company, authorized by the town commissioners. Mebane’s Community Park located on 550 W. Center Street, opened November 2018. The park begins at the far west end of Clay Street, which was recognized by North Carolina Great Places as a “Great Main Street in the Making.” Though Mebanites have long since recognized Clay Street as a great street, period. The influence of the railroad Trains, a faster and more modern means of transportation,

gave birth to new communities of the late 19th century. The small depot in Mebane was built on the corner of Washington and Fifth streets. Just 218 people lived in Mebane in 1900, and the town covered just one square mile. Like many small towns in the south, Mebane was a working class community with manufacturing and agriculture as its foundation. An increase to 693 in population was noted in 1910. By 1920, this total had swelled to 1,351, and in 1930, it was tallied at 1,568. The official record in 1940 was 2,060, and in 1950 the number of people was set at 2,068. Since 1950, the population has grown five times that size. A great deal of that growth has happened in the past 20 years, and has in fact doubled since 2000. If the railroad was the artery that fueled Mebane’s growth, the town’s two largest employers established its industrial and manufacturing base. The White Furniture Company formed in 1881 and The Mebane Bedding Company (now known as Kingsdown) opened in 1904. The local tobacco market was recognized for its importance to the area for over 50 years. As Mebane grew so did the amenities, such as The Ridgeville Telephone Company, which began service in 1907 and is today CenturyLink. In 1908, the Mebane Leader went to press for the first time and is today your local, hometown newspaper, the Mebane Enterprise. The Enterprise – owned by Womack Publishing Co. out of Chatham, Virginia – proudly goes to press each Wednesday, and is responsible for many side publications, including the one you currently hold in your hands.

very strong industrial and manufacturing base with growth toward the east; (4) A strong recreational program; and (5) Building community and managing growth with a stable infrastructure. Cheek and his longtime Assistant City Manager Chris Rollins, who will be replacing Cheek as Mebane’s new City Manager in 2021, continue to carry out the mission and the priorities of the City of Mebane with a vision. “We are in great financial shape and building infrastructure to handle the growth,” said Cheek. “We are ahead of the curve. Mebane is the place to be.”

Expansion and Managed Growth Today, Mebane has changed from its early history as a quiet company town and farm-to-market center to a growing hub of light manufacturing, retail, service, and commuting workers. City Manager David Cheek, who announced his retirment effective in the winter of 2021, cites five strengths of Mebane as it heads into the future: (1) The pride of being a Mebanite; (2) Mebane’s location as the “engine” of the interstate; (3) A

Mebane’s

Real Estate Boom

By Adam Powell Enterprise Editor The town of Mebane is in the midst of a real estate boom, as local developers are scurrying to acquire and prepare plans for what little available land is around the outskirts of Mebane. More and more homebuyers from all over North Carolina are being drawn to Mebane for its high standard of living, its low taxes, and its central location, which makes it easier for residents to commute all over the state, from Greensboro to Raleigh, and all points in-between. “I’ve been selling in Mebane personally since 2007 for a couple of the different builders,” said New Home Specialist Terri Bescher, who currently works in the Magnolia Glen Estates community for Eastwood Homes. “With my real estate career, I’ve primarily focused on new construction. I can definitely see a change in the trend of people that people who work in RTP now are actually looking in this direction.” “As it used to be, they would only look on the other side of RTP, like Holly Springs and Fuquay-Varina,” Bescher continued. “Mebane is more affordable, and the drive commute is probably comparable, if not a little better. So you’re seeing more of that buyer coming in this direction. We’ve always had the Duke and UNC folks who work at those locations, because it’s just a really good commute. I would say that we do see more the trend of buyers coming from the east, versus the west.” During the 2018-19 fiscal year, the City of Mebane approved more than 2,500 new individual housing units to be constructed in the coming years. Listed below are just a few of the new home communities in the local area.

Autumn Trace Although Autumn Trace is technically a few miles south of Mebane in the Haw River/Swepsonville area, the community offers some of the best home values for new construction in the entire area. Jim McBride of West and Woodall Property Management, based out of Durham, is marketing a series of townhomes that are approximately 1,634 square feet. The townhomes under construction within Autumn Trace feature natural gas heat, central air, and an electric water heater. Homes come with a stove, microwave, range, and dishwasher all included. These townhomes constitute some of the best local buying opportunities for affordable new construction in all of eastern Alamance County. Autumn Trace is located along N.C. Highway 119, not far from the Honda Plant in Swepsonville, and the proposed site of the new ABSS high school. Students in the neighborhood are directed to Mebane’s Hawfields Middle School, and will eventually be directed to the new high school. As far as the community, it has a Haw River address despite technically being in the township of Swepsonville.

Bingham Trace Bingham Trace, a Windsor Homes community just across the Alamance County side of the Alamance-Orange County 14

MEBANE NEWCOMERS & VISITORS GUIDE

line along Jones Road, has 36 homesites with house plans ranging from three to four bedrooms and 1,800 to 3,500 square feet. Bingham Trace is a somewhat unique community in Mebane’s currently real estate boom in that it offers well water and individual septic tanks. The overwhelming majority of homes that have been approved in recent years by Mebane were approved under the condition that the developer connect to the city’s water and sewer infrastructure. One of the more attractive features of Bingham Trace is the large homesites, which are noticeably larger than numerous other new home communities currently selling homes around Mebane.

Bowman Village, Bowman Place TES Development, LLC, is building 177 single-family homes on 69.22 acres at the corner of Bowman Road and Rock Quarry Roads. The developer proposed to the Mebane City Council in June two communities- Bowman Village and Bowman Place. 49 homes are to be constructed north of Bowman Road, and 128 south of Bowman Road. The 49-home segment to the north is to be called Bowman Village, while the 128-unit segment will be called Bowman Place. Although a portion of the proposed development sat in what was deemed a manufacturing/industrial district by Orange County, the developer submitted an application for rezoning of the property, which was approved prior to the approval of the residential development itself back in June 2019. Bowman Village will be on one side of the road, and Bowman Place will be on the other side. Courtyards at Magnolia Glen Progress has been remarkable at the Courtyards at Magnolia Glen, a Windsor Homes community developed by Venn Hillsborough, LLC. The Magnolia Glen project, which was approved by Mebane in the summer of 2016, will include 244 homes in total on 84.65 acres. Magnolia Glen offers several floor plans with One Level Living and some two story plans, irrigation system on each home site and landscape/lawn care maintenance. There are also sidewalks throughout the community and a pool and clubhouse. Windsor Homes is currently offering five floor plans for construction within the Courtyards, ranging from 1,693 to 2,557 square feet, with three to six bedrooms and two to four bathrooms.

Cambridge Park D.R. Horton is building the initial phase of homes within Cambridge Park - a 238 acre property that will eventually have 600 single-family homes and 131 townhomes. The Developer, Desco Holdings, LLC, designed the neighborhood as a Residential Planned Unit Development. In August 2019, local leaders gave the green light to Desco Holdings, LLC and D.R. Horton to begin he initial phase of Cambridge Park. Phase 1 included 65 lots in total, covering approximately 26.42 acres. Phase 1A of Cambridge Park calls for 1.23 acres of recreation area and open space, along with


4,579 feet of public streets. According to D.R. Horton’s website, the community offers several collections of homes with ranch, 2-story single family, and townhome designs. Homeowners will enjoy a thoughtfully planned community centered around nature and recreational amenities such as a pool, community clubhouse, and park. Homesites, which are currently available, will allow for any one of five floor plans that D.R. Horton is offering in Cambridge Park in this initial phase, ranging from 2,558 to 3,473 square feet. All of the floor plans - Fleetwood, Grant, Hampshire, Wilson, and Washington - offer four bedrooms, with the largest, the Washington, offering five bedrooms. Two of the larger plans - the Washington and the Grant - offer four bedroom, four bathroom options, while the two smallest floor plan, the Fleetwood and the Hampshire, offer three bathrooms. The Grant floor plan also has a three-car garage.

1,500 and 2,100 feet of heated and cooled square footage. The homes will feature crawlspaces finished with engineered stone, along with covered front porches and hardiplank or “SmartSide” exteriors. The original home on the property, referred to as the Huey House, is a 2,093 square feet brick house. The Huey House will be painted to be harmonious with the remainder of the community. One bedroom will serve as the Homeowner’s Association office. Two bedrooms will be used for accommodations of Stagecoach Corner guests. The rooms can be checked out by homeowners within the community for friends, family, and local guests. An outdoor area for socializing and recreation will be built to include a fire pit and patio picnic area.

The Meadows Located just across the Alamance-Orange county line in Orange County along Bowman Road, not far from Mebane Oaks Road, The Meadows offers the convenience of close proximity to Mebane - as well as a Mebane address - with Orange County schools and amenities. Developer Bowman Road Partners LLC received approval for 318 single-family homes and 51 townhomes as a planned unit development. Two builders - Capitol City Homes and LGI Homes - own land within the development and are currently building new homes.

Mebane Towne Center The Mebane Towne Center - a 45.71 acre project being constructed by Keystone Group, Inc. between Cameron Lane and Mebane Airport Road, was approved in the spring of 2018 after heavy negotiating between the Mebane City Council and the developer. The Mebane Towne Center will combine 416 residential rental apartments with 171 townhomes for sale, along with just under 50,000 square feet of retail space. A portion of the development’s apartments will feature first-level retail space, totaling nearly 50,000 square feet for new businesses. Wallace said the development is designed to mirror other mixed-use locations in Raleigh, Chapel Hill and Charlotte.

The Retreat at Lake Michael Developer Lebanon Road Partners, LLC got approval from the Mebane City Council in February 2019 to move forward with its 15.57 acre project along Lebanon Road, adjacent to Lake Michael. KB Home is contructing a total of 43 ranch and two-story homes in The Retreat - some of which will offer spectacular views of nearby Lake Michael.

Stagecoach Corner Developer Harmony Homesteads got the green light in April to develop 35 single-family homesites on 15.92 acres at the corner of Stagecoach Road and N. Ninth Street. The new community will feature a mix of one and twostory stick-built homes, featuring three bedrooms and two or two and a half bathrooms. The homes will offer between MEBANE NEWCOMERS & VISITORS GUIDE

Mebane Dogwood Festival The Mebane Dogwood Festival is the longest running festival in the area. Held on the fourth Friday and Saturday in April, it draws thousands of people to downtown Mebane. Following a disappointing cancellation of the 2020 Dogwood Festival due to the COVID-19 pandemic, organizers are excited for the return of the Dogwood Festival for its 32nd annual event in 2021. The two-day event, which runs Friday and Saturday, will feature special events including a golf tournament, live music and entertainment, street dancing, street vendors, a car show, and a fitness race. With downtown streets closed, the festival draws a variety of more than 150 arts, crafts, food, and other festival style vendors. The festival kicks off midday on Friday with a Golf Tournament at a local course and the momentum continues with a Friday evening Dogwood 5K race in downtown Mebane, an event that has grown to more than 600 runners. The Festival moves down to Clay Street on Friday night with street vendors, children’s rides and live entertainment to kickoff the event.  Saturday is a fun-filled day with classical festival sights, sounds, and tastes. With three stages set up for entertainment, street vendors for shopping and carnival rides for the kids, there is something for everyone at the Mebane Dogwood Festival. A car show featuring over 70 automobiles on Saturday morning attracts more festival goers with awards given by a panel of judges. Dogwood Festival T-shirts are available and sold at the Festival. Profits from the festival are used for a variety of projects throughout Mebane and Alamance County. There is no admission fee.

The systems merged July 1, 1996. The Alamance-Burlington School System has garnered the support of business and community leaders with community stakeholders spending months formulating a Vision Plan that the school board adopted: “We envision a public school system that is a national model for its curriculum and community engagement to empower all Alamance County students with equal opportunity for civic engagement, a meaningful quality of life and skills for economic success - for themselves and our community.” The school district’s Superintendent is Dr. W.

Public Library Mebane Public Library

Alamance Libraries Mobile Cafes with Internet

The Mebane Public Library is a showcase for Mebane’s historic preservation and a literary storehouse for Mebanites. The library is located at 101 S. First Street. Their phone number is 919-563-6431. Hours of operation are Monday and Tuesday from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday, 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Sundays from 1 to 5 p.m. During the summer months from Memorial Day to Labor Day, the library is closed on Sundays. In addition to the many diverse programs for all age groups, the library serves as a meeting place for organizations. The Mebane Public Library is part of the Alamance County Public Library System.

The Alamance County Public Library is driving into the 21st century with a new service: Mobile Café providing Pop-Up Internet Service. The Mobile Café, which began in August of 2018, offers technology and Wi-Fi service at eight locations in northern and southern Alamance County. The converted 2004 Chevy Astro Minivan that was once the library’s courier van received a make-over and upgrade. Stocked with tables, chairs, beverages, and snacks to sell, the Mobile Café strives for comfort and access with an antenna that offers a 300-foot radius of Wi-Fi connectivity. Alamance County Public Libraries partnered with a variety of community organizations in some of the more isolated parts of Alamance County to act as library mobile stops. The four northern stops aree Beth Schmidt Park, Scott Community Health, Pleasant Grove Recreation Center, and Fairview United Methodist Church. The four southern stops will be Cedarock Park, Rock Creek A.M.E. Church, Cane Creek Friends Meeting, and Eli Whitney Recreation Center. Internet access, through home service and Wi-Fi, are becoming a standard resource that most citizens need and are increasingly critical for children and adults who engage in educational endeavors. Schools and businesses have begun to move toward assigning homework and accepting applications completely through electronic means, and yet, according to 2015 Community Health Assessment, 31.3 percent of Alamance County have no internet access at home. “The new Mobile Café will assist all citizens to bridge the digital divide and have better access to resources available only online,” said Jason Rogers, Assistant Director of Community Relations. “We want to be able to provide a service to help with connecting those who have little or no access in the communities where they live.” Dates and locations for the Mobile Cafe can be seen at www.alamancelibraries.org/services/mobile-vehicles

Little Free Library - Take a Book, Leave a Book Alamance County Public Libraries is proud to sponsor 21 Little Free Libraries throughout Alamance County. The concept of Take a Book, Leave a Book began in 2009 in Wisconsin by a man who built one to honor his mother (https:// littlefreelibrary.org/about/). There are now 50,000 Little Free Libraries all over the world. In 2015, Alamance County received a grant from Impact Alamance to purchase weatherproofed little libraries and install them across the county. The library also partnered with a number of organizations that support the Little Libraries by providing upkeep and/or reporting any weather-related damage. By offering Little Free Libraries, the library hopes to help to impact more people by providing a place to exchange books and promote literacy in Alamance County.

Today, it is home to more than 80 animals, and more than 21 species; employs more than a dozen full and part-time individuals; and is a hub of volunteer activity. The park welcomes over 16,000 visitors each year from all over the state and across the country. In addition, the Center participates in collaborative educational efforts with other institutions that expand the educational impact far beyond the park’s borders.

Graham-Mebane Lake Graham-Mebane Lake, formerly known as Quaker Lake was expanded from 150 acres to its present size of 650 acres in 1994. The lake now serves as a raw water source for the cities of Graham and Mebane. The lake also serves as a recreation source for the citizens of the area offering skiing, bank fishing, sport fishing and more. The lake supports one of the best catfish populations in the area, with the lake record channel catfish (caught in 1985) weighing in at 19 ¾ pounds. The lake consistently produces trophy bass throughout the year with the lake record large-mouth weighing in at 12 pounds. Other species sought after are crappie and redear (shellcracker) sunfish. Crappie fishing is considered fair by local anglers and the best time of the year for shellcrackers is when they are bedding. Fish attractors have been installed to provide cover and improve angling success. Attractions and activities offered at Graham-Mebane Lake include boat or pier fishing, a designated bank fishing area, tackle loaner program, sailing, boat and kayak launching ramps, water skiing, seasonal permits, concessions and miscellaneous supplies, playground area, picnic area, restrooms and drinking water.


There are fees charged depending on the type of activity and residency. There is also a speed limit on the lake and boat size restrictions. Hours of operation vary depending on the season. Graham-Mebane Lake is closed during the months of December and January and open for weekends only during the months of February and November. Operating hours during the other eight months are general sunrise to sunset but can vary. Graham-Mebane Lake is located 3218 Bason Road in Mebane. For more information, call 919-563-6544.
