This week in history we look back 10, 25 and 50 years to see what was going on in the eastern Wake Count area.
In 2004, Knightdale was gobbling up land as it expanded. In 1989, Zebulon was taking action on their water woes. And in 1964, Zebulon was set to dedicate its new water plant.
Land annexation is a touchy issue for towns, but it has to go on if the town is to continue growing and avoid stagnation. In 2004, Knightdale was beginning a series of forced annexations.

After a lot of water problems mirroring the 1989 issues, the Town of Zebulon was set to dedicate their new water plant.
