Those who have come to the Raleigh, North Carolina, area to rent an apartment have most likely been attracted, at least in part, by some virtue that the region can attribute to the cultural and commercial centers of Durham, Chapel Hill, and the capital city itself. As bustling areas where any individual can search for a job, catch a play or visit a museum, it seems natural that young apartment hunters would be attracted to the area. But for all of the alluring qualities that these urban areas boast, there are an equal number of appealing qualities that are exclusive to the small, rural towns near Raleigh.
Renters in Middlesex apartments can experience first-hand the charm of life in a town that is in no rush to catch up with the hustle-bustle of perhaps more well-known locales. While many people renting apartments in Middlesex may work in the city or Research Triangle Park, they can be certain that their home town will be reserved as a place for relaxation.
The town of Middlesex's website specifically highlights the Manning Brothers Hardware store as proof of the community's commitment to preserving a slower lifestyle. Locals, including those who rent apartments in Middlesex have formed the habit of gathering by the coal stove on colder days to have a Coke or sleeve of crackers and take a break from their day. The store, which has been around since 1954, sells common hardware items like fertilizer and garden seeds, but also houses a 5-gallon bucket of molasses, which is poured into smaller glass jars for sale.
