Raleigh has a quality of life that has established itself among the nation's best places to live, start a business, raise a family and earn a world-class education.

Raleigh History

Raleigh became the state capital in 1792. Wake County was chosen because it was situated between the populous coastal plain and the scattered settlements of the backcountry and mountains. The city of Raleigh - named in honor of historian and explorer Sir Walter Raleigh - was founded on 1,000 acres of land purchased by the state from Colonel Joel Lane, a Revolutionary War veteran and state senator. Raleigh is the only state capital in the nation established on land specifically purchased by the state for its seat of government. The city´s founding fathers called Raleigh the City of Oaks and dedicated themselves to maintaining the area´s wooded tracts and grassy parks. Raleigh established itself as an educational center in the 19th century and now hosts North Carolina State University, Peace College, Meredith College, and Shaw University. Raleigh has experienced amazing growth in the last century and is consistently receiving notable national accolades. With carefully planned economic development, Raleigh continues to stand out among the rest of the nation's top metro areas.
