The City of Mebane is located mostly in Alamance County (although a portion of the city is in Orange County). The downtown area houses many historic homes and sites including the long abandoned White Furniture Company. This building has recently been renovated to house modern loft apartments now called The Lofts at White Furniture. As the Lofts bring more people to the downtown area, the town is slowly revitalizing itself with more businesses moving back downtown. A new 31-acre community park is expected to open in early 2018 and several new subdivisions are either approved or already under construction.
Mebane and the surrounding area offer a relaxing lifestyle in a family friendly community within easy commute of Durham and RTP. The Alamance county area also offers very low taxes compared to the City of Mebane and Orange and Durham Counties. Tanger Outlet Mall to the south of Mebane is a shopper's paradise.
The Mebane community hosts a variety of events including a Dogwood festival, Autumn festival, Christmas parade and various music and social venues throughout the year.
The City of Mebane and surrounding area are serviced by two school districts depending on the county in which the property is located – the Burlington-Alamance School District and the Orange County School District. For the Orange county side of Mebane, the high school is either Orange High or Cedar Ridge depending on the location of the home. In the Alamance County side of Mebane, the high school is currently Eastern. However, the Burlington-Alamance School District is considering the construction of a new high school to handle the population growth in the area. When construction of the new school is completed, student reassignments will take place.
