Faison, NC History

The Town of Faison is a historic town. The town’s Historic District is on the National Register of Historic Places. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, Faison’s strategic location along the Wilmington-to-Weldon railroad made it a major center for agricultural commerce and shipping point for agricultural products, by rail, to northern cities. In the mid-1900s, farmers from miles around would bring their products to the Faison Produce Market to be auctioned/sold and shipped, mostly by truck, to northern markets.

Today, Faison has emerged as an international exporter of food products. Major agribusinesses include Bay Valley Foods, Southern Produce Distributors, Cottle Farms, and Burch Farms. The Town of Faison embraces its history. The original Faison Depot Train Station c1888 was moved to the Town Park and today serves as a Public Library and Public Museum.

As a result of the construction of Interstate Highway, I-40, from Raleigh to Wilmington, growth along this corridor has been on the rise. This has been benefited the town and its residents in many ways. In addition, I-40 and other highway construction in the area has shortened the time required for residents of the Faison area to access resources in other towns along the I-40 corridor and other areas.

The Faison Area is also a patriotic community, proudly claiming more than 700 veterans from all wars. In October 2015, Faison honored its veterans with an event attended by more than 800 people.
