Within Wake County, home to the state capital of Raleigh, Holly Springs is tucked into the southwest corner, which until 20 years ago was a mostly rural area. Thanks to the explosive growth of the region and an aggressive economic development strategy, the landscape has been transformed into a thriving community with beautiful neighborhoods, golf courses, retail opportunities, and one of the world's largest and most sophisticated flu vaccine manufacturing facilities.
