History
The Historic Wakefield Barn is part of Wake County’s rich agricultural history. In the 1930s, businessman and philanthropist John Sprunt Hill bought the property to indulge his hobby of raising prize Guernsey cows. Construction of the Wakefield Dairy Complex, including the main barn, began in 1934. Over the years, the property has had several owners and the barn was converted into a horse stable in the 1970s. In the 1990s, the developers of Wakefield subdivision bought the property as they turned the area into a large residential community with a golf course, but the barn still remained in its spot. In 2000, Mary Schilling and her husband, Steve, bought the property when Mary was looking for a place to board her house. Throughout the years, the stable has housed some of North Carolina’s best hunters and jumpers. Now, it is open and welcomes couples in holding their wedding ceremony, reception, or any other event.
