Wake Forest is centrally located between the Blue Ridge Mountains in the west and the Atlantic coast in the east, offering the best of both worlds. An average yearly temperature of 60 degrees fahrenheit is one reason why the area is known as "the great outdoors".
The success of the Greater Wake Forest Region lies in its cultural and historical attractions. From the North Carolina Symphony and Broadway-Style theatrical performances to the state's museums of art, history and natural sciences, as well as professional hockey, minor league baseball, arena football and Atlantic Coast Conference college basketball, the region is living proof that "variety is the spice of life".
The Triangle offers traditional public schools, magnet schools, as well as private and charter schools. The Triangle ranks at the top of the class in several degree programs at nationally acclaimed Duke University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University.
In 1820, Dr. Calvin Jones bought 615 acres of forested land in Wake County, NC. This area became known as the Forest of Wake, or Wake Forest. Jones later sold his farm to the North Carolina Baptist Convention, which became the site for Wake Forest College. In 1840, a railroad depot was established nearby stimulating the school and the surrounding village. The "Town of Wake Forest College" was established in 1880.
Beginning in the 1990s and continuing today, Wake Forest has seen an explosive growth in its population, now having close to 30,000 residents. Wake Forest is expected to grow and exceed 40,000 residents.
