R. Koslow Web Designer Printed by 4 Autumn 2017 | Wake Forest 27587 Magazine From the Editor WE'RE ONLINE! Check out our digital editions at 27587magazine.com and mobilemagz.com It's pretty hard to miss, this re-emergence of downtowns, from Durham's hi-rise City Center to the byways of Raleigh to — yes — even Wake Forest, where everything from townhouses to condos to apartments promise to bring pedestrians to what one visitor described as the "authentic" heart of the old college town. Read all about it in our cover feature, "New dawn for downtowns." And hey, in case you haven't noticed, it's our 3rd anniversary, so we decided to reprise the original comics you've seen in each of our up-till-now 12 editions. In case you've forgotten any of the stories behind those illustrations, check out our digital editions at 27587magazine.com. As for this issue, we'll take you again on a time-tunnel journey in "Rewind," this time in a "en & Now" look back at a stretch of old Route 1, today's busy South Main Street. ere's also a write-up on an old country club whose original highway sign has re-emerged more than a decade after its closing. In our regular "Field Trip" feature, we drop in again on 27614, but it's not Bedford this time. It's Bay Leaf, a place where eclectic roadside stopovers jut up against high-end neighborhoods projecting the image "You've arrived!" In "is Classic Place," we again descend on a Faculty Avenue abode, once home to a boy who would grow up to become a legendary basketball coach. But that's not all. Today, the circa 1902 Italianate-style house has a curious connection to none other than "the king of the wild frontier." Again, we'd like to shine the spotlight on our "Publisher's Circle," those civic-minded entities whose annual commitment to advertise in 27587 MAGAZINE in effect makes them partners in bringing this magazine to you, our readers. Please join us in welcoming e Forks Cafeteria & Catering as they join Roark Premier Team, e Jim Allen Group, Whitley Furniture Galleries, Bright Funeral Home, Triangle Family Dentistry, Brooks Street Bowl, and Leli's Diner as well as Molly Maid, Wake Forest Downtown, and the Wake Forest Area Chamber of Commerce in this special group! ank you! While we're at it, we'd like to extend an invitation to more of our top corporate citizens to join 27587 Magazine in this endeavor. So, as we've said time and again, come along as we — in the words of National Geographic — embrace "places to explore and discoveries to be made," only in our neck of the North Carolina Piedmont.
