Wake Forest

Collegiate Beauty
The historic Wake Forest Neighborhood is within walking distance of residence halls and academic buildings of Wake Forest University, a private university founded in 1834. Originally called the Wake Forest Manual Labor Institute, the school was initially established for Baptist ministers and laymen - both the students and staff had to spend half the day doing labor work on the campus’ plantation! Today, the neighborhood draws many faculty members, administrators and students who want a home near to class and within the extended academic community. The Reynolda House Museum of American Art is located nearby for a bit of cultural attraction.

There are plenty of places near Wake Forest to grab a bite and meet up with friends. Restaurants in the area include Fratellis Italian Steakhouse, May Way Dumplings, Village Tavern, Ryan’s, and Mama Zoe’s. Bars in the area include Friendly Tavern, Quiet Corners Sports Bar, and Jaye’s Lounge. Starbucks is also nearby, a now staple for any college town. Wake Forest is a unique neighborhood, perfect for people who want to live in a place that exudes the very character of Wake Forest.
