History

The area now known as Knightdale was originally inhabited by the Tuscarora Indians. The town was then home to Englishman John Hinton, who was sent by the King of England to settle the land. For the next half century, Knightdale remained a quaint town, and was completely devastated during the Civil War. After 1865, Raleigh experienced a rapid growth in population, and Wake County redrew the county map, dividing the area into townships. The area that is now Knightdale was originally included in St. Matthew’s Township and was considered a small crossroads for several years.

 

At the end of the 19th century, local citizens felt the need to make the community into a chartered town. Henry Haywood Knight donated some of his land holdings, hoping that Norfolk and Southern Railroad Company would build a railroad through the area — which eventually happened, and Knightdale was incorporated in 1927. Activity in the town began to increase after the establishment of the railroad. Trains were able to transport timber and farm products in and out of town, and many families began to move to the area.
