If you could travel back in time 100 years and take a snapshot
of the quintessential American town, chances are it would look, and
feel, a lot like Benson, North Carolina does today.
A town whose architecture was never bulldozed away in the name
of prefabricated progress. A town whose historic main street still
buzzes with commercial activity the way it did a century ago. A town
where neighbors know each other by name, people walk the streets without
fear, and — as evidenced by our 30+ churches — family values are still
alive and well.
So firmly rooted in the past, Benson at the same time looks to
the future with great anticipation. Situated at the intersection of two
of the most important Interstate routes in the eastern United States,
Benson is ideally positioned to prosper from the growth and economic
diversification that is sweeping across eastern North Carolina. Benson . . . life at its best, and getting even better.
