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!


There are no upcoming events at this time.

Attention residents of the Stem Community. Please see the below attachment and join me in congratulating the Stem Fire EMS for this huge accomplishment of earning an ISO rating of 5/9E You may ask, “What does this Insurance rating means to me?” This rating is used to set the homeowner rates for our community. (5 Mile Radius)The lower the rating the lower the insurance premium. With this rating and savings in mind, I ask you to keep the Stem Fire EMS in mind and to support this great organization that is voluntarily working for each of us and please participate when they are holding fund raising events. Mayor Casey Dover

Good afternoon, As Duke Energy gradually resumes standard billing and payment practices in North Carolina, our goal is to work with customers in need to ensure they have the opportunity to enroll in a payment plan that meets their specific situation, and that they have an opportunity to connect with local assistance agencies and funds. Beginning Oct. 1, customers behind on their bills will receive notices about their past-due balances. Disconnecting a customer’s service is the very last step in a lengthy process, and it’s a step we want to avoid altogether. That’s why we are giving all customers who need more time to pay the opportunity to establish an extended payment plan to catch up on any balance that accumulated during the disconnection suspension. No customer on a payment plan who is current on that arrangement will be disconnected. It is important that they contact us as soon as possible to set up the payment arrangement. We want customers facing financial hardship to know that we are here to help. Our team is prepared to support customers through these challenging times and provide manageable solutions to keep their lights on. We can be reached at the following numbers: Duke Energy Carolinas: 1.800.777.9898 Duke Energy Progress: 1.800.452.2777 We also encourage customers to consider using the online self-service options to avoid longer wait times. We recognize the financial impacts from this pandemic, for some, are far from over. If you know someone who needs help managing their Duke Energy bill, please encourage that person to give us a call. Thank you. Tanya Evans District Manager Kevin McLaughlin Vice President, Government Affairs and External Relations Ryan Minto Director, State Government Affairs
