Wake Forest


Wake Forest, North Carolina  was incorporated by NC in 1880 as the "Town of Wake Forest College" after the Wake Forest Manual Labor Institute was re-named the Wake Forest College.  In 1909, the word "College" was removed from the town's official name. Wake Forest College has since moved to Winston-Salem, NC.

Located in northern Wake County, less than 10 miles north of Raleigh, Wake Forest has a population of 12,588 residents. In 2007, the town was listed by Forbes Magazine as the 20th fastest growing suburb in America, with a 73.2 percent increase in population between 2000 and 2006. Wake Forest is located in the northeast central region of NC, where the North American Piedmont and Atlantic Coastal Plain regions meet.

Fast Growing Wake Forest is known as a business-friendly town. The thriving downtown area is home to more than 100 business and restaurants, yet the area still maintains its historic charm and southern hospitality. In addition, Wake Forest is the home of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and the Southeastern College at Wake Forest.
