A Frenchman and Veteran of the American Revolutionary War, William Fuquay purchased a 1,000-acre plot of land on which to settle with his family. His great-grandson soon discovered a mineral spring while plowing one of the family's fields. Soon, the spring developed a reputation for restorative properties, and visitors traveled from miles around to bathe in its healing waters. Because of this, Fuquay Springs was born. Nearby, a young civil war veteran who had once been his wartime pen pal returned home with his wife. He named his mercantile Varina Station, and the nearby timber industry caused a small settlement to grow up around his establishment. Eventually, the two small settlements grew together, becoming modern-day Fuquay-Varina. These days, the town is one of the region's fastest growing towns. From 1970 to 2010, the population more than quadrupled, due to its old-fashioned charm and close proximity to the Research Triangle Park. According to the latest 2015 census report, 23,907 residents call Fuquay-Varina home. The original mineral spring that made Fuquay such a popular tourist attraction is still in existence and has since been turned into a park. The revitalization efforts over the last 20 years have succeeded in creating a quaint, vibrant downtown, with plenty of shopping opportunities for locals and visitors alike.
