The Brewer-Nelson House – History For Sale!

Every once in a while a great gem becomes available in the Wake Forest Historic District!  Now is one of those times!

The Brewer-Nelson House (c. 1853, c. 1860) is a stunning example of the incredible architecture blend that you can find in Wake Forest.  John M. Brewer built a log cabin on this site in about 1853.  In about 1860, it was enlarged and the log section was converted to a basement as part of the “English Basement” of the 1 1/2 story Greek Revival fame homes.  The design was based on a house in Suffolk, VA.  It is the only example of this style of southern architecture on the street.
