Apex

4.5
Apex is a town in Wake County, North Carolina and a suburb of Raleigh. The U.S. Census Bureau estimates the town's population to be 43,907 as of July 1, 2014.GeographyApex is located at .According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 15.4sqmi, of which, 15.2sqmi of it is land and 0.15sqmi of it is water.Neighboring towns include Cary to the north and northeast, Holly Springs to the south, and Raleigh to the east and northeast.HistoryThe town of Apex was incorporated in 1873, named for its location as the highest point on a portion of the Chatham Railroad which ultimately extends between Richmond, Virginia and Jacksonville, Florida. Apex grew slowly through the succeeding decades, despite several devastating fires, including a June 12, 1911 conflagration which destroyed most of the downtown business district. The town center was rebuilt and stands to this day, now one of the most intact railroad towns in the state. At the heart of town stands the Apex Union Depot, originally a passenger station for the Seaboard Air Line Railroad and later home to the locally supported Apex Community Library. The depot now houses the Apex Chamber of Commerce.Apex suffered mild setbacks during the Depression-era, but growth began again in earnest in the 1950s. The town's proximity to North Carolina's Research Triangle Park spurred additional residential development, yet the town managed to preserve its small-town character. During the 1990s, the town's population quadrupled to over 20,000, placing new demands upon Apex's infrastructure.
