Scenes From North Carolina's Newest Town Archer Lodge, in Johnston County.
Archer Lodge is primarily a farming community that is seeing more and more of the land being used for homes. It became a town after people were afraid that the larger towns of Clayton and Wendell would eventually incorporate the area.
Their ETJ's were knocking on the door and folks were afraid that if they did not incorporate, that the name would disappear. As with every thing new there are learning curves and the town is finding it's way. They did not waste any time in getting our new tax bills out though.
So now it's up to the Planning Board to decide what will be allowed and what vision they have for the town.
There are some nice homes available in Archer Lodge, and the prices are generally lower than other parts of the Triangle, that combined with good schools, and good roads, the proximity to job centers and the beach could make the newest town in North Carolina a busy town soon.
