Holly Springs is a town in Wake County, with neighboring towns Apex and Fuquay Varina. As of 2010 census, the town population was 24,661, over 2.5 times its population in 2000. The town of Holly Springs grew around fresh water springs believed to be the original "holly springs", near the intersection of what is now Avent Ferry road and Cass Holt road. These roads liked Raleigh to the Cape Fear River and ultimatley to Fayetteville as well as linking Hillsborough to Smithfield.
It was not until the town built its first sewage plant in 1987 that any real growth occured. It was 1992 before Holly Springs really boomed, in line for the spillover from increased populations in Cary and Apex. Population increased from 900 in 1992 to an estimated 6000 in 1998 to nearly 25,000 in 2010.
For years, town leaders have become increasingly confident that Holly Springs is positioned to experience high growth, propelled by the economic engine of Research Triangle Park, located 18 miles away.
In 2007, it was ranked the 22nd best small town to live in, according to a CNNMoney.com evaluation.
