PEAKTIQUE, what"s in a name
In 1853, what is now Apex NC was known as "Log Pond Village." In 1868, the railroad started coming through Log Pod Village and the engineers and conductors would refer to the Depot in Log Pond Village as the Apex Station. The reason it was spoke of as the Apex Station was because it was the highest geographic point along the rail line between Chatham County and Richmond Va. In 1872, Log Pond Village petitioned the state legislator to be incorporated as a town to be named Apex. In the early 1970"s the Town of Apex had a contest to come up with a tag line or slogan. The winning slogan for Apex was: "The Peak of Good Living."

So – we took the slogan and the word "antique," combining "PEAK" with "ANTIQUE" to get "PEAKTIQUE". And now you know the rest of the story.
