On April 28, 2007, CAP, the Wake County Historic Preservation Commission, and the Wendell Historical Society presented the Spring 2007 Landmarks Tour of Historic Wendell. The tour was a huge success, with somewhere between 150 and 200 persons in attendance. Citizens from all over Wake County enjoyed the architecture, the charming character of Wendell and its downtown historic district, and meeting many new friends and neighbors. Ten beautiful houses were the centerpiece of the tour that represented the growth and prosperity of Wendell from the 1850s through the 1940s. The day also included two presentations made by Ray Hinnant, president of the Wendell Historical Society, on the history of Wendell, and by Charles Zidar, Vice-Chair of the Wake County Historic Preservation Commission, on the value of historic landscapes. After the tour, CAP, the Wake County Historic Preservation Commission, and the Wendell Historical Society celebrated their collaboration with an After-Landmarks Tour Party. The party was graciously hosted by John and Beth Narron at “Sunnyside”, their lovely home in Wendell, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. During the event, Wake County Historic Preservation Commission Chair Ed Morris presented Landmark Plaques to six eastern Wake County Historic Landmarks including the M.C. and Martha Todd House, the Perry Farm, the Henry and Bettie Knight Farm, the Dr. Lawrence Branch Young House, the Hartsfield-Perry Farm, and Oaky Grove. In attendance for the Tour and/or the Party were State Representative Linda Coleman; Rosa Gill, Vice-Chair Wake County School Board; Mayor Tim Hinnant of Wendell; Commissioner Carol Hinnant of Wendell; Commissioner Bill Connolly of Wendell; Mayor Nancy Kelly of Rolesville; Matt Livingston, Rolesville Town Manager; Frank Drake, Wake Forest Commissioner and Mayor Pro Tem; Raleigh City Councilor Tom Crowder; and Phil Jeffreys, former Wake County Commissioner.
