Explore Everything Rolesville Has to Offer

Named for founding father, land owner, cotton merchant and postmaster William Roles, this 8,000-person town has all the southern charm of a small town with just enough amenities to make it comfortable. Bordered on three sides by farms, pastures and rural areas, Rolesville shares its western border with Wake Forest, with its own numerous shopping and recreation possibilities.

Rolesville is a boom town. It grew faster than any town in North Carolina between 2010 and 2016 according to the U.S. Census, and was recently named by SafeWise as one of America’s 50 safest communities. Town leaders have responded to the growth with big plans to redevelop downtown –where a new town hall building, library and a recreation center are desired. A recent land purchase will put a 116-acre park in town limits to be used for baseball, softball, soccer, football and basketball, and for possible future entertainment and educational uses.
