What Bert Has To Say About Burlington Metro Area

Burlington was previously part of the Greensboro-Winston-Salem-High Point metropolitan area, but has recently grown large enough to deserve its own metro area designation. Burlington is located halfway between Greensboro (20 miles to the west) and Durham-Chapel Hill (30 miles east). The city of Burlington was founded shortly before the Civil War, as an assortment of railroad maintenance buildings. For thirty years, the community of the railroad depot and the surrounding homes was known simply as “Company Shops.” When the railroad moved its repair facilities, a new name was sought, and the city of Burlington was incorporated in 1893.
