Support the Wake Forest Historical Museum

Each year, thousands of individuals visit the Wake Forest Historical Museum, tour the Calvin Jones House, and enjoy our gardens and grounds without paying any admission fee. Only with your generous support will the Wake Forest Historical Museum continue to preserve and share the history of Wake Forest for many years to come.

In addition to annual support from Wake Forest University in the form of staff salaries and maintenance of the Calvin Jones House, the Wake Forest College Birthplace Society relies on membership dues and donations to pay the electric bill, water the lovely Brewer-Harris Garden, fund new exhibits and educational programs, and care for our growing archival and artifact collections. You can support the museum by making a financial contribution today, joining or renewing your membership to the Wake Forest College Birthplace Society, or purchasing a commemorative courtyard brick in honor of a loved one.
