Join us as we explore a new part of historic Wake Forest every month, including the Wake Forest Historic District, Glen Royall Mill Village, Downtown, the Northeast Community, and the SEBTS campus.

Tours will occur on the fourth Friday of each month unless it corresponds with a holiday weekend.

Explore the Campus of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and College

This tour explores the SEBTS campus. The campus sits on the site of a former plantation and was the founding place of Wake Forest University. Only two nineteenth-century buildings remain, and Southeastern continues to occupy most of the buildings constructed by Wake Forest College in the twentieth century, although all buildings have undergone considerable renovation inside.
