Wakelon School is significant in Wake County’s history in the area of education as one of the first four public high schools built in the county under the 1907 state law enabling such institutions. The building is significant in Wake County and in Zebulon in the area of architecture as a rare and excellent example of an eclectic design combining the Neoclassical and Italianate styles. The building retains distinctive materials and original architectural details, preserving its integrity of materials, design, and workmanship. The setting remains similar to its original appearance as an open campus surrounding the imposing building set back from the road. Wakelon School and its surroundings therefore retain integrity of setting, association, and feeling.
