About Wake Forest
Wake Forest is a mid-sized city in North Carolina's Wake County, just north of the state capital, Raleigh. In the early 2000s, Wake Forest became one of the fastest-growing suburbs in America, as its population exploded from just over 12,000 in 2000 to more than 40,000 by 2015. Its proximity to the North Carolina Research Triangle has led many families and young professionals to establish their homes in Wake Forest.
The History of Wake Forest
Wake Forest began as a quiet university town. Development of Wake Forest started in 1820, when Dr. Calvin Jones bought land in the area. In 1823, Jones became the area's postmaster. The town supported Wake Forest College, today known as Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. A school for boys, the Wake Forest Institute, opened in February 1834. At the beginning of the Civil War, the facilities owned by the institution became hospital for wounded soldiers.
In the 1830s, a New England doctor purchased just over 600 acres on forestland in Wake County, North Carolina. Few people lived in the area, which was known as the Forest of Wake, or Wake Forest. A short time later, the doctor sold some of the land to the North Carolina Baptist Convention. The organization established the Wake Forest Manual Labor Institute, later called Wake Forest College. In 1840, a railroad depot in the nearby community of Forestville began to bring new people to both the school and the surrounding Wake Forest community.
When leaders at the college persuaded the railroad to relocate nearer to Wake Forest in 1874, the town flourished even more. Originally, it was incorporated as the town of Wake Forest College, but eventually it became known as just Wake Forest.
