The History of Willow Spring, North Carolina is very confusing. The original town center, located in Wake County, has an expanse that is 98% in Wake County and 2% in Johnston County based on the U.S. Census demographics.
Many people say there are two: Willow Spring (Wake County) and Willow Springs (Johnston County). This is just part of the confusion. Furthermore, the county government accenuates the situation by having signs, schools, etc with Willow Springs and Willow Spring in both locations. Accordingly, it is mentioned that the U.S. post office does not deliver to an address of Willow Springs, NC (it must not have an "s" at the end of Spring). Since 98% of the town is in Wake County, we are honoring the no "s" version of the town spelling.
In Wake County, Willow Spring was an incorporated entity but that changed a few years ago and it is now part of rural Wake County. The Johnston County location is unincorporated and at the far east end of the 27592 Zip code. The town basically consists of a post office, school, town hall and several houses. The town is between Fuquay Varina, Angier and Clayton NC.
Two homes in Willow Spring are listed on the National Register of Historic Places: Frank and Mary Smith House and Turner and Amelia Smith House, both built in 1880.
