The Raleigh-Durham metropolitan area, also known as the Research Triangle, is home to a number of world-class universities and is the second largest metropolitan area in the state of North Carolina.

Raleigh, North Carolina, or the City of Raleigh is located in the center of North Carolina. Raleigh is the capital of North Carolina, and many say Raleigh is the heart of the state by its geographic location within the state. Raleigh is known for the oak trees that line the many streets and is known as the City of Oaks. Raleigh is located, for the most part, within Wake County. Wake county was founded June 4, 1771. Wake county was named for Margaret Wake. Margaret Wake Tryon was the wife of the Colonial Governor of North Carolina, William Tryon. Margaret Wake Tryon was considered nonconventional for a woman of her era. She was an accomplished woman of her time who enjoyed debating men on political and military issues which was not the norm during her era. 

The City of Raleigh was named for English statesman, explorer, and writer Sir Walter Raleigh. He played a key role in the colonization of North America during the Elizabethan era, the reign of English Queen Elizabeth I (1558–1603). Sir Walter Raleigh founded the lost Roanoke Colony in Dare County, NC.

Raleigh was established as the state capital in 1792. The North Carolina State Convention of 1788 voted to find a geographic central location as the North Carolina seat of power. The state of North Carolina purchased 1,000 acres from an early and influential settler of Wake County, Joel Lane. Joel Lane had originally lobbied for the formation of Wake County in 1771. After the founding of Wake County, the first courthouse and jail were constructed on a hillside in front of Lane’s plantation home. Lane’s home and courthouse eventually become such a popular destination, Lane constructed a tavern, inn, and church to accommodate the many visitors.

Lane’s plantation home was the site of many important governmental meetings during the American Revolution. Lane hosted the colony Council of Safety in his plantation home in 1776. Lane’s plantation home and property was used for North Carolina’s General Assembly session from May to June 1781. This settlement became known as Wake Courthouse or Bloomsbury, which eventually became the City of Raleigh. Joel Lane’s home, now a museum, has been moved and is located at 728 W. Hargett Street Raleigh NC.
