The City of Mebane traces its beginnings to the early 19th century when a post office was established in 1809. The town was named for Brigadier General Alexander Mebane of the North Carolina Militia and a member of Congress in the 1790’s. In 1855, the railroad arrived and Mebane was incorporated in 1881 as the town of Mebanesville. The name was officially changed to Mebane in 1883. The charter was amended to the City of Mebane in February of 1987.

Also in 1881, Mebane’s industrial growth began with establishment of the former White Furniture Company, followed by the Mebane Bedding Company in 1904 and the Ridgeville Telephone Company (now MebTel Communications) in 1907.
