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!

Huge thanks to the Alford family for picking up litter from Brogden Road as part of their Adopt A Highway effort. I counted 21 bags of litter and debris on my way back into town. We rely on volunteers like you to keep Stem beautiful!

For everyone else, donโ€™t forget to do your part by securing your loads on your way to the dump and properly disposing of your trash.

****Correction: The Alford Family actually collected 30 bags of litter and debris.****
