I was wondering if anyone out there could tell me about Middlesex. I was asked about this town from someone that wanted to relocate. It is in Wake County which is rated high for their schools but can anyone tell me what it is like there?

It's in southwestern Nash County, about 8 miles east of Zebulon. It's a very small, rural farm community. The website below will give you more info.

I had a friend that lived there. I didn't see a lot around there when I went over that way but a lot of farmland which is real typical of the eastern area of North Carolina. The cities start getting into the state once you hit the piedmont area around Raleigh. The largest city in the east that I can think of is Wilmington. Where is person with the maps that can tell us which city is the largest in the eastern 42 counties?

Wilmington is the largest city in the east and the 9th largest in the state with a population of slightly over 75,000. The next largest would be Greenville.

I'm a little late to the conversation I see, but nonetheless, I'll think I'll give my opinion regardless : ].

Ahhh, Middlesex, my hometown..raised here, lived here my entire life.
It's definetly not a farmin' community! lol...anymore anyways...
There are a few here or there...but only a few.

The population has boomed, in my opinion, compared to what it used to be, when I was growin' up it was probably around 200, 300 people at the most.
Now it's nearly 1,000.
And thats not really a good thing.....

Now, to be completely honest, it's turned somewhat into a "ghetto" type place...especially the area I live in, near the park.
It used to be very nice, quiet, your sterotypical "small town".
Definetly NOT that anymore.
It's turned into a very run down poor little town.

Which definetly saddens me.
I still love this town anyways...just, I have to accept things change I guess.

Welp, hope I helped a little!

I just moved here from Miami, Florida, well 4 moths ago. I am still trying to get use to the quietness. I have heard that it's become a ghetto and thats sad. I was wondering what people do for fun here. I wish that there was some type of community gatherings.

What's the latest on Middlesex? The last post was in Jan of 2007. Has it gotten worse or are things looking up?
