Wake Forest: A Metropolitan Feel, Small Town Charm

Welcome to Wake Forest

Situated less than 10 miles north of Raleigh, Wake Forest is a prime location for anyone wishing to enjoy a quality way of life with all the benefits of city living.

History

The town began in 1832 when the North Carolina Baptist Convention, intent on establishing an educational institute to train future ministers, purchased

Downtown Wake Forest

Dr. Calvin Jones’ 615-acre plantation north of the existing community of Forestville for $2,000.  The commercial and residential growth allowed the community to be incorporated on March 26, 1880, as the Town of Wake Forest College. The college and the town thrived together through good times and bad until shortly after the end of World War II when it was announced the college would move to Winston-Salem. Happily, the Southern Baptist Convention decided to locate its new seminary in Wake Forest, and Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary shared the campus with the college until it moved in 1956.

Beginning in the 1990s and continuing today, Wake Forest has seen an explosive growth in its population, now has close to 30,000 residents with expectations of growing to 40,000. New subdivisions have been built, and the town boundaries now run from – and into – Franklin County on the north to the Neuse River on the south, from west of U.S. 1 on the west to just shy of U.S. 401 on the east.

Wake Forest Today

Today, Wake Forest has grown into a thriving community, offering residents and visitors diverse economic and cultural opportunities.  From art galleries and specialty shops to coffee companies and consignment boutiques, Downtown Wake Forest is a vibrant, charming, historical and happening place to visit.
