Get to Know Rolesville, NC

Rolesville as we know it today began as a farming community more than a century ago. When it was incorporated as a town in 1837, Rolesville was still largely comprised of family-owned farms, although a school had sprung up by that time.

Today, Rolesville is mostly suburban and is growing quickly, in part due to its location near Raleigh and Research Triangle Park (RTP). Residents also have quick access to shops and restaurants in Wake Forest, regional attractions like Falls Lake State Recreation Area and major highways that connect the Triangle area to the rest of the state.

While Rolesville residents do enjoy access to the big city, they also love the perks that come with small-town living: bigger yards, larger homes and a break from the hustle and bustle.

The Evans Team's Top Picks

Rolesville's Unique History

While Rolesville's downtown has changed over the decades, you can still get a sense of what it was like to live there many years ago. Rolesville Furniture, one of several established local businesses downtown, began as a flea market in an old stable before it expanded to include twelve buildings. The Little House Museum & Gallery, located in a 19th-century homestead, features local history exhibits as well as arts and crafts showcases.

Parks and Recreation

In the heart of Rolesville is arguably the town's most popular hangout, Main Street Park. Featuring a beautiful gazebo, rentable picnic shelters, a playground and paved greenway trails, the park has everything you need to enjoy the fresh air and warm sunshine.
