Carrboro, North Carolina settled in 1882 around a railroad spur of UNC, was first known as West End because of its geographical location west of Chapel Hill. Incorporated in 1911 as Venable, the town made its final name change two years later in honor of Julian Shakespeare Carr, owner of the local textile mill. For the first fifty years after its incorporation, Carrboro remained a small mill town with a slow, steady pace of growth. In 1960, approximately 2000 people lived in the town. By the year 2000, the town's population had grown to over 16,000 residents. Population in 2010: 19,582.
