Neighborhoods in Wendell boast well-manicured lawns, lush foliage, and paved sidewalks, dotted with primarily traditional homes. The median home price in Wendell is below the state and national averages, but is expected to steadily rise, making this a valuable area to invest in real estate.


Lifestyle and Attractions

Wendell is a small satellite town of Raleigh, which is located about 20 miles to the west. The town is named after American poet Oliver Wendell Holmes, but the name of the town is pronounced “win-DELL”. The town of more than 6,000 has experienced rapid growth, as the population grew by 36 percent between 2000 and 2010. Wendell is an ideal community for those working in Raleigh or the Research Triangle Park area who prefer a more laid-back lifestyle than what the capital city can offer. Additionally, Wendell is home to the headquarters of international companies Siemens and Kioti Tractors.


The town hosts a number of annual events and festivals, including the International Food and Music Festival, the Harvest Festival, an Independence Day Celebration, and a Christmas light show. The picturesque historical downtown district in Wendell is notable for its intact collection of one- and two-story brick masonry commercial buildings form the early 20th century. Residents enjoy recreational activities at Wendell Park, which has lighted tennis courts, sports fields, playgrounds and more.


Nearby Schools and Higher Education

In Wendell, there are six Wake County Public School System schools, including three elementary schools, two middle schools, and one high school. There are no private schools located directly in Wendell, but there are 79 private schools within Wake County. Wendell is home to Southeastern Free Will Baptist College, and there are several institutions of higher learning nearby, including Duke University, North Carolina State University, Shaw University, and more.



During the 1850s, tobacco farmers throughout nearby Granville County were hit with what was called the Granville County Wilt, which caused the tobacco crop to fail. The farmers then moved into eastern Wake County in search of fertile land for their crops. A village began to form in this area, and a local schoolteacher named the town Wendell after his favorite poet, Oliver Wendell Holmes. However, members of the community pronounced the town “Win-DELL” rather than the traditional pronunciation of the name Wendell. Wendell, which is still pronounced as such, was incorporated in 1903.
