Burlington Area Chevrolet Dealers - Burlington, NC
|Hint: Save thousands by using a fax machine. Fax a description of your desired car to all the dealers within 200 miles and request a quote. You can go as far as you are willing to drive. What ever you do don't include your phone number at this point. You will get phone calls from sales people but few quotes. Once you have all the quotes take the best one and fax it to the others that are in the ball park. Ask them if they can do better. Keep doing this until you get the price down as far as you can. Good Luck!|

Burlington is a city in Alamance County in North Carolina, a state of the United States of America. It is the principal city of the Burlington, North Carolina Metropolitan Statistical Area which encompasses all of Alamance County. The population was 44,917 at the 2000 census. The town hosts the Burlington Royals baseball club of the Appalachian League.
The need of the North Carolina Railroad Company in the 1850s to locate land where they could build, repair and do maintenance on its track was the genesis of Burlington, North Carolina. The Company selected a piece of land slightly west of present day Graham, North Carolina.
By the time the shops were completed in 1857, the village had grown to twenty-seven buildings. Thirty-nine white men, twenty Negro slaves and two free Negroes were employed in or around the shops. The employees and their families needed to live within walking distance; hence, a town begin to develop. The town was called Company Shops.
Sale of town lots soon started, but not surprisingly, the sale of lots was slow until after the Civil War. By 1864, Company Shops numbered about 300 persons.
In 1886, the North Carolina Railroad Company transferred its operations to Manchester, Virginia. The railroad offices and shops at Company Shops were closed. With the railroad shops no longer operated there, the citizens of Company Shops decided a new name was needed. In February 1887 a committee of the towns leading citizens selected Burlington.
The city of Burlington was incorporated and a charter was issued by the State Legislature on February 14, 1893.
Most of Burlington's shopping districts are located along the I-40/85 and US 70 corridors. The city's only indoor mall, Burlington Square Mall is located at the intersection of Huffman Mill Road and Church Street (US 70). [ More on Burlington, NC ]
