About the 4th District

I represent over 620,000 people in North Carolina's Fourth Congressional District. This region, often referred to as "The Triangle," is widely recognized as one of the nation's best places to live, work, do business and raise a family.

The Fourth District includes all of Durham and Orange Counties, part of Wake County, and a small section of Chatham County.

In recent years, the Fourth District has experienced rapid economic and population growth. While the reconfigured Fourth District has retained some of its small towns and rural areas, it is now largely suburbanized, and there is a strong emphasis on research and development with Research Triangle Park (RTP) located in the heart of the district.

Back in 1959, when I arrived in the Fourth District to attend the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, few people had the vision that the countryside triangulated by Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill would become one of America's high-tech boom areas. RTP was born in 1959, the progeny of visionaries Governors Luther Hodges and Terry Sanford, UNC sociology professor Howard Odum, industrialist Robert Hanes, investor Karl Robbins, contractor Romeo Guest, bankers Archie Davis and George Watts Hill, and others. It began as a research and development industrial park owned by the private, not-for-profit Research Triangle Foundation.

In addition to being a technology center, the Triangle is also world-renowned for its institutions of higher learning. Below you will find several state links, including some more detailed information about colleges and universities. Take a few minutes to learn more about the fine organizations of the Fourth District!
