The Town of Wade was settled around the Wilmington & Weldon Railroad and was named for N.G. Wade. Mr. Wade was a local businessman who sold cross ties to the railroad. The Town was originally charted in 1869; however this charter was later abandoned. Wade was again chartered on March 8, 1913. This charter called for the election of a Mayor and three Commissioners. The dimensions described for the Town in the 1913 charter made Wade exactly 1 mile square. Following the ratification of this charter until 1936 the Town progressed with the establishment of a post office, jail, drugstore, street lights and other businesses.

There are no records of Town conducted business after 1936 until 1967 when work began by citizens to reactivate the 1913 charter. On May 6, 1968 the first election for this era in Town government was held with the election of a Mayor and three Commissioners. In 1969, the charter was changed to add two additional commissioners and in this same year, the Wade Community Fire Department was established. In July of 1972 the Town acquired a building that could be used as a Town Hall where Board Members and citizens could meet to discuss the future of the Town. These meetings and the hard work of many different elected officials and citizens have resulted in many accomplishments and changes within the Town during the past 37 years. The Town of Wade was able to construct its first park in 1977 with the acquisition of grant funds.
