Zebulon is a small town located near Raleigh in the Research Triangle metropolitan region. This friendly residential town provides a laid-back lifestyle just minutes from it all.


Real Estate

Zebulon is an affordable area to live, as the median home price is well below that of the state and nation. Housing options range from renovated historic homes with mature foliage to new construction properties in new developments. There are plenty of large estates in Zebulon situated on expansive lots, as the community enjoys a spacious country setting.


Lifestyle and Attractions

With a population of approximately 5,000, Zebulon is a small town located about 25 miles east of Raleigh. It is considered part of the Research Triangle metropolitan region, making it an ideal area for those who work in Research Triangle Park or surrounding cities, but wish to experience small-town living. The largest employer in town is GlaxoSmithKline, a pharmaceutical, vaccines and consumer healthcare company. In the more rural areas of Zebulon, agriculture is still part of the local economy. Common crops growing in this region include cotton, tobacco, wheat, corn, and soybeans.


The community center in Zebulon is a popular gathering place for community events. Market on the Lawn is an annual event with live performances and a market filled with work from local artists and vendors taking place in Zebulon each May. The Zebulon Parks and Recreation Department manages parks of all shapes and sizes, including the Zebulon Community Park, a 47-acre park with picnic shelters, a playground, walking trails, an 18-hole championship golf course, sports fields and courts, and more. The Carolina Mudcats are a minor league professional baseball team playing at the ultra-modern Five County Stadium in Zebulon.


Nearby Schools and Higher Education

Zebulon is served by the Wake County Public School System, the largest public school system in the state. In Zebulon, there are three public schools, including two elementary schools and one middle school. Additionally, there are 79 private schools in Wake County, including one in Zebulon, Heritage Christian Academy. Zebulon is situated near a number of colleges and universities, including Duke University, North Carolina State University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and more.



In 1905, two local businessmen had the foresight to see the benefits of the upcoming installation of the Raleigh and Southern Pamlico Railroad, so they purchased 275 acres in the area now known as Zebulon. They then divided the acreage into lots and put the parcels up for sale. In 1907, the community that evolved along the railroad was named Zebulon, honoring popular Civil War North Carolina Governor, Zebulon Baird Vance.


The railroad and the many businesses in town, such as banks, tobacco warehouses, professional services, a cotton mill, and retail shops, made Zebulon a significant trade center. By the 1920s, Zebulon had reached a population of 1,000 people.


Over the decades, Zebulon remained quaint and quiet, until the development of the Research Triangle Park, which initiated population growth as people moved to the area to work.
