Knightdale is a town in Wake County, North Carolina, United States. The population was 11,401 at the 2010 census, up from 5,958 at the 2000 census. With the population boom experienced in the North Carolina Research Triangle area in the past two decades, Knightdale is a suburb of Raleigh.
After World War II, the population of Knightdale grew at a steady pace, thanks to the Baby Boom. The corner drugstore, the bank, and the barber shop located on First Avenue served as places of business, as well as places for social gatherings. Movies were often shown on the wall of the old bank building, which is located at the intersection of First Avenue and Main Street. In 1952 a municipal water system was installed.
Beginning in the 1960s the majority of new businesses in Knightdale began locating along US 64. With the addition of the Mingo Creek sewer outfall in the late 1980s, development on the south side of US 64 began. Subdivisions such as Parkside, Planter's Walk and Mingo Creek subdivisions were built, rapidly increasing the town's population. Between 1990 and 2000 Knightdale's population increased from 1,700 to more than 6,000 residents, making it the seventh fastest growing town in North Carolina.
The median income for a household in the town was $56,021, and the median income for a family was $62,073. Males had a median income of $41,149 versus $30,325 for females. The per capita income for the town was $23,340. About 4.3% of families and 4.7% of the population were below the poverty line, including 5.7% of those under age 18 and 5.5% of those age 65 or over.
