The Grand Opening

November 14, 2010 was a beautiful day for a ribbon cutting.

Maybe Wake Forest native Barbara Lyon said it best. “To us Wake Forest was the same, the community and the college. We never said Town of Wake Forest or Wake Forest College. It was just Wake Forest.”

That’s what you saw on November 14th. A crowd of several hundred family and friends gathered together to celebrate the special history of this town, college and university.

It was just Wake Forest.

A lovely bouquet left by the Wake Forest Garden Club. WFHS tassel. We’re going through the collection and it’s fun! Downtown Zebulon, NC at night. Simply stunning. Want to know what today’s weather was like exactly 90-years ago? This 1928 Farm Journal was kept at Oakforest in Forestville and that day was “Fair and cold. Henry, Richard and I went to Raleigh today. Philo and Junior sawed and hauled firewood and then hauled logs to the same mill.” Many thanks to Barbara Massenburg for giving us a look at this very cool artifact!
