Town of Spencer

In 1896 the Southern Railway Company chose a point halfway between Washington, DC and Atlanta, GA for its largest steam locomotive servicing facility called Spencer Shops. The shops and the town that grew up around them were named after Samuel Spencer, the first president of Southern Railway. Today the facility is a state historic site preserved as the North Carolina Transportation Museum, open to the public year round. The town’s pride in its railroad heritage is shown in the annual "Steamfest" celebration.
