This Town of Wake Forest park offers several historical attractions including:
Restored Farm Buildings - The original farm structures included a mule barn, tobacco barn, and chicken coop. These have all been refurbished and a restored log cabin added so visitors can experience history firsthand.
Pecan Grove - The majestic pecan grove, originally planted during the Great Depression, is managed to encourage an annual crop. New trees have been planted to fully restore and maintain the grove.
Walker Garden - Named in honor of Willie (Will) Lee and Mamie Tee Walker, who owned the farm for 36 years before selling it to Mr. Joyner in 1982, the Walker Garden boasts a formally arranged perennial garden enclosed by a picturesque stone wall. The space is a perfect setting for reading, painting, or quiet reflection.
