Led by architectural historian and Town Historic Preservation Planner Michelle Michael, the tours will include areas along North Main Street, North Avenue, Front Street and South Avenue. Along the way, each group will discuss the developmental and architectural history of the area, along with the significant men and women who lived in the homes. Individual homes will not be toured. Each tour will begin and end at the Wake Forest Historical Museum at 414 North Main Street.
Space is limited to the first 12 participants to sign up for each tour, so pre-registration is required by completing the online sign-up form. Additional tours may be planned in the spring of 2018 depending on interest.
