Fuquay-Varina is a small but growing town in the southern part of Wake County, about 17 miles southwest of Raleigh. The town’s hyphenated name comes from the merging of two towns, Fuquay Springs and Varina in 1963.
While development in the area today includes numerous residential communities and commercial sites along the major roadways into town, many of the older structures from its past remain within the town limits. The Victorian, Craftsman, and Colonial Revival homes constructed in the late 19th century and early 20th century are contributing structures to the Fuquay Springs National Register Residential Historic District, while the downtown shops and businesses are part of the Varina National Register Commercial Historic District.

What was once Fuquay Springs is what lies on South Main Street, Spring Avenue and South Fuquay Avenue, while the area formerly known as Varina is focused north of there, around the intersection of Broad and Stewart streets. A simple three-minute drive or approximately 15-minute walk will get shoppers between both areas and in the midst of the full experience.
