It has been a pleasure working with Judy. I've known Judy since we bought our investment property (over 7 years ago).

Garner Area Information
When the North Carolina Railroad was built in the 1850’s, it initiated the creation of many towns. Garner, located in St Mary’s Township, is one such town. Garner got its start with the coming of the railroad through the area beginning in 1847. In that year, after a tie-breaker vote by the Speaker of the State House of Representatives, what is now Garner was chosen as the location of a new station of the North Carolina Railroad that ran between Goldsboro and Charlotte.
Before the railroad tracks traversed the area that would soon become Garner, cotton and tobacco crops, which were vital to the growth of Garner through the twentieth century, dominated the land. The lack of buildings on right-of-way maps from the 1850s illustrates how sparsely populated this area was. Sometime before 1870, the railroad acquired a “wood and water” stop, roughly located in what is now Downtown Garner. Although it wasn’t a depot, the railroad must have contributed to the growth of the settlement as a post ofﬁce was needed by 1878. "Garner's Station" was established with the construction of a post office in 1878 and the Town of Garner's Station incorporated in 1883. Within one year Garner’s Station was a prospering town with several general stores. For unknown reasons, the charter was repealed in 1891. Once the town acquired a railroad depot, it was reincorporated in 1905, this time as “Town of Garner”. The depot, a four room building with a tin roof, quickly became essential to the community, carrying passengers once a day to Raleigh and establishing Garner as a local market and shipping point for cotton. Garner is situated in the St. Mary's Township, which got its name from a Church of the England parish. It is known that there were settlers in the area before the Revolutionary War. There are documented records of a church south of Garner in the Panther Branch Township as far back as 1756. According to the late Parker Rand, a 3,000 acre tract of land was granted his forefathers by King George in 1759. Part of this area later was to be the site of a community known as Rand's Mill. Rand's Mill Pond was later renamed Lake Benson. It was enlarged in 1951 and is now used as a reservoir. Garner has continued to grow and prosper since its early beginnings. The first town officials in 1905 were, J.B. Richardson, mayor; H.D. Rand, J.J. Bagwell, H. Bryan, M.C. Penny, and J.S. Buffaloe, all aldermen. These gentlemen were appointed to serve one year or until their successors were duly elected and qualified.
