    Its a good place in the middle of the major cities. Its small and everyone is friendly. Anyone is welcome and its an easy commute to Raleigh, Durham, Oxford, Butner, and Wake Forest.
    The weather here is amazing! North Carolina receives both ends of the thermometer.
    Rex Hospital is absolutely amazing!!! When my grandma went to Rex for her health problems, the doctors and staff were there to make sure she had everything she needed to help her tp h=get better. They encouraged her and took care of her as if she were family.
