A piece of history: How Raeford Got Its Name
The gentlemen who operated the turpentine distillery and general store in old Raeford, located near what is known as the swimming hole on Rockfish Creek, wanted the post office in their store for the convenience of the townspeople. In order to choose a name for the post office, they took a syllable from each of their names...one being John McRae, and one being A.A. Williford...Thus the name “Raeford” was given to the town.
