The Town of Benson, which derives its name from early settler Alfred Monroe ("Mim") Benson, owes much of its historical development to the railroad line, which passed through the present location in 1886 on its route to Fayetteville. Mr. Benson's purchase of a 402-acre tract along the Smithfield-Fayetteville Road in 1874 initiated the settlement of the area now known as Benson. Today, the down offers a thriving downtown retail center and is host to Benson Mule Days and Benson Singing Convention. I-95, Exit 79 and I-40, Exit 325.
