The Story Behind the Name “Hunter Rowe”

Back in 1788 the North Carolina HUNTER is from Isaac Hunter, who owned the historic Isaac Hunter’s Tavern (originally located on the current site of the Hilton Hotel on Wake Forest Road, just north of inner beltline). Isaac’s hospitality was so appreciated that in 1788 the North Carolina state legislators ordered the new state capital be located within 10 miles of his establishment.
