Area residents petitioned for a new county, which prompted the North Carolina General Assembly to create Alamance County. Centrally located, Graham was established as its county seat. Men arrived by stagecoach, horseback, and wagon to live and work in this emerging town. Entrepreneurs provided the vision and tradesmen supplied the labor as mercantile businesses, hotels, and homes dotted the town''s growing skyline. Graham became a trading center for residents of Alamance County as well as the neighboring counties of Orange, Chatham, Caswell, and Randolph. Before long, all roads led to Graham. Today, activities in the community still revolve around the court square and downtown businesses. Graham showcases the vibrant history and evolution of this unique North Carolina Piedmont town.
