Apex is a town in Wake County and is considered a suburb of Raleigh. The population was 20,212 at the 2000 census and estimated to be over 35,000 now. The town of Apex was incorporated in 1873, named for its location as the highest point on a portion of the Chatham Railroad. Apex grew slowly through the succeeding decades, despite several devastating fires, including a June 12, 1911 conflagration which destroyed most of the downtown business district. Apex suffered mild setbacks during the Depression era, but growth began again in earnest in the 1950s. The town’s proximity to North Carolina’s Raleigh and the Research Triangle Park spurred additional residential development, yet the town managed to preserve its small-town character. During the 1990s, the town’s population quadrupled to over 20,000, placing new demands upon Apex’ infrastructure.
