Fuquay-Varina: Distinctive Name, Distinctive Charm
The city's motto helps break the ice when speaking of this tight-knit southern Wake County town: "Distinctive Name, Distinctive Charm." The hyphenated name speaks to the town's history of starting as two separate towns. Fuquay Springs and Varina merged in 1963 to create a more modern town.
The merger of the two cities did not destroy the history of either town, and the Victorian, Craftsman, and Colonial Revival homes constructed in the late 19th century and early 20th century are still found there today. They contribute to the Fuquay Springs National Register Residential Historic District.
