County Votes To Reestablish “Starlight”

Welcome to Starlight!

On Tuesday, the Wayne County Board of Commissioners approved a resolution to reestablish the area near the intersection of S. Jordan’s Chapel Road and Raynor Mill Road as the Community of Starlight.

The area is in the southwest corner of the county.

The community name was established in 1894 at the intersection of S. Jordan’s Chapel Road and Raynor Mill Road.

After the community Post Office closed in 1905, the community name gradually fell into disuse.

Wayne County received a petition with 45 signatures asking for the intersection to be named Starlight.

The resolution was necessary to get the NCDOT to place a community designation sign and place the name Starlight on the NCDOT county map.
