Small Town Living At Its Best

Welcome to Stem!

Stem began with the area known as Tally Ho and was a prime fox hunting territory in the 1700s. The Stem family were co-proprietors of a general store in the Tally Ho Township and owners of the land where the Richmond and Danville railroad met. Today, Stem is a thriving small town in the heart of Granville County, with easy access to Raleigh, Durham and the Research Triangle Park. Welcome to our Town!

πŸ“£ Exciting Update from the Stem Ruritan Club! πŸ›οΈ

Had the pleasure of hosting the newly appointed Granville County Manager, Drew Cummings, at a recent townhall style event, and it was truly informative! πŸ—£οΈ

During the session, we delved into crucial topics, including:

1️⃣ Upcoming Property Re-evaluations (75/80%): Understanding the ins and outs of this process and how it will affect our community.

2️⃣ Handling Exempt and Deferred Tax Properties: Exploring the changes coming our way for properties currently receiving agricultural exemptions that shouldn't be.

These discussions shed light on the future direction of our county, and we encourage all residents to stay engaged! 🏑✨

As participation was lite we suggest you mark your calendars and attend the future townhall meetings happening throughout Granville County in the upcoming weeks. Your participation is vital for shaping our community's future! πŸ“†πŸ€ See this page for upcoming
