Images of America, CARY. Cary, N.C. was incorporated in 1871 and by 1880 there were nearly 300 residents and by 1930 that number tripled. The timber industry kept Cary alive as well as cotton gins, and other manufacturing businesses. Cary had a private boarding school by 1870 and in 1907 it became the first publicly funded and attracted students from around the state. Doctors, lawyers, merchants, churches, and many other businesses sprang up. However, it was the creation of Research Triangle Park that caused Cary’s explosive growth.
