Access to the Research Triangle is Better in Person
Person County puts all of the powerful advantages of the globally renowned Research Triangle at your command, with heightened affordability and reduced congestion. Thanks to a strategic proximity inside the northern edge of the Triangle region and excellent highway and air logistics, Person is the right place to enjoy convenient and profitable access to all of the Triangle’s rich assets in knowledge, technology, and opportunity.
Living and working in Person offers the everyday ease of uncongested roads and scenic rural landscapes, yet a location on the four-lane U.S. Highway 501 puts the city of Durham just 20 minutes away. And while Person has retained its down-to-earth feel, it has also kept pace with today’s high-flying air travel needs. The Person County Airport is a well-designed and -maintained general aviation airport offering superb FBO (fixed-based operator), ILS/DME (instrument landing system/distance measuring equipment), and a runway over 6,000 feet. That means fast and powerful freedom of movement for business executives and staff.
Person County also supplies far more freedom within corporate and personal budgets thanks to lower costs, particularly in housing. According to Sperling’s Best Places, median home prices are 89% higher in Durham than in Roxboro, 123% higher in Raleigh, and 211% higher in Chapel Hill.
That means more money to spend on housing, but also on all the amenities and advantages that the Research Triangle region offers, such as arts and cultural events like performances at the Durham Performing Arts Center and the Duke Energy Center, or exciting sports action cheering on the Durham Bulls. All those extra funds could go toward lifelong education at the premier institutions that form the research backbone of the Triangle—Duke University, the University of North Carolina, and North Carolina State—or any one of the region’s many community colleges and other four-year universities.
