Located just a short commute west on Interstate 40, just past historic Hillsborough, the Mebane area is in the midst of a growth spurt. The area has several new housing developments, and because of the availability of land as well as solid infrastructure systems, business opportunities abound.
This area really and truly offers the perfect mix of lifestyle and location. At the same time, the area encompasses three major East Coast cities, and borders North Carolina’s Research Triangle. Which means that, when residents tire of hiking, kayaking and cycling, they can easily take advantage of the educational, cultural and professional opportunities offered by these close-in, metropolitan centers. Additionally, for all of its rustic, rural appeal, the location, along with a network of interstate highways, makes travel in any direction both quick and easy.
Culturally, the county is shaped largely by its world-renowned university system, as well as the forward-thinking companies that have made their homes here. These companies are attracted by the county’s pro-entrepreneur leadership, along with its abundant supply of highly educated, highly skilled workers. The climate here is conducive not only to business, but to a thriving arts community, too, as evidenced in the county’s numerous public art displays, commercial galleries, arts & crafts studios, performing arts events, concerts and movie showings.
