The Story Map of the Northeast Community in Wake Forest

May 25, 2021 @ 6:30 pm 7:30 pm

We’re celebrating Preservation Month with a series of free webinars on Wake Forest History.

On Tuesday, May 25 join us for an introduction to the Northeast Community’s Story Map with Michelle Michael, Senior Planner (Historic Preservation) and Chris Robey, Masters of Landscape Architecture Candidate at the University of Georgia. Michael and Robey will talk about the research behind the map and provide an overview of some of the places featured in the map, including the site of the Wake Forest Normal & Industrial School, Fire Department #2, and the community pool.

Preservation Month programs are free and open to the public, but registration is required. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. 

Another fantastic way to honor preservation month and learn more about Wake Forest’s rich history is to take a self-guided Walking Tour. The Town has two self-guided Walking Tours:

  1. Downtown District
  2. Local Historic District

Tours are accessible through the Town App, website, and physical brochures are available at the Museum and Town Hall.

The Town is also hosting a historic preservation-themed scavenger hunt. All participants who upload all ten photos of the correct historic features will be entered into a drawing for a $20 gift card to Lumpy’s Ice Cream. Learn more.
