Fuquay-Varina has an unusual name and can catch people who don't know the history of the name. It is a little interesting and has a touch of romance so we thought we would include it.

Here it is - loosely told. There was a Frenchman name William Fuquay who settled in a small town called Sippihaw (enter the name Fuquay, pronounced 'Few Quay').

His great-grandson discovered some springs in the area which were marketed as "mineral springs". This brought an economic boom to the area as a health spa and people came from all over to dip in the springs during the mid 1800s.

At the same time a confederate soldier named J.D. Ballentine came home to Sippihaw after the war. During the war he wrote letters to a southern lady who signed her letters "Varina." Her name was Virginia - Varina was her nick name (enter the name Varina, pronounced 'Va Reena').

You guessed it - they met and fell in love. Ballentine became the first postmaster of Sippihaw and named it (the post office - I guess) for his lady love "Varina."

Meanwhile the spring health waters were going great guns so Sippihaw was renamed Fuquay Springs (1902).

Varina grew also - although I'm a little fuzzy on how it became its own town. But, it did and we then had two growing towns - Fuquay Springs and Varina.

Fuquay Springs and Varina were competing towns with each trying to best the other. But, in 1963 their shared emphasis on agricultural and industrial growth and the fact that everybody worked, played, and went to church together, resulted in the two towns merging into Fuquay-Varina. TADA

Fuquay-Varina is steeped in history and has two (of course) registered historical districts.

Now that you know the story of the name here's information on the city today.

Fuquay-Varina is located in Southwest Wake County about 30 minutes from Raleigh.

It is very picturesque with rolling farm lands and forested areas. It is a very comfortable and active community with close to 30 parks and sports venues. Fuquay-Varina golf courses are Bentwinds Golf and Country Club and Crooked Creek golf course.

Fuquay-Varina has a very nice combination of homes. Fuquay-Varina homes are available in all styles and price range from the mid $100,000s to over a million.

Home prices of course depends on what you are looking for - golf course homes, homes with room for horses, quite family subdivisions or homes with beautiful view overlooking personal lakes and ponds. Homes in Fuquay-Varina have something for everyone.

Nearby communities include Holly Springs and Apex to the Northwest, and Raleigh to the North.
