Wheeler Place Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Wheeler Place is triangulated between Tryon Road, Interstate 40, also known as the Tom Bradshaw Freeway, and the subdivision entry street of Lake Wheeler Road. Eclectically diverse, dwellings within this subdivision vary in size and design. Pedestrian-friendly sidewalks, well-established trees and retro charm are a hallmark of this commune just off the fringe of the local historical district.
Within the 27603 zip code, Wheeler Place is a pleasant Sunday walk from historic sites like the Mordecai Historical Park and Haywood Hall and Gardens. The Mordecai House was the birthplace of America’s 17th president, Andrew Johnson.
The most outstanding feature of the Wheeler Place area is Yates Mill County Park. Preserving agricultural history, this historical water-powered gristmill and millpond provided corn grinding services to founding members of Raleigh society. In 1999, plans began to build this historic site into an environmental piece of history. In 2006, the setting opened to the public free of charge. Today, the Yates Mill County Park is owned by Wake County, but since earliest known documentation, this location has had approximately 12 or 13 owners. One of those owners was William Boylan who established Raleigh’s first newspaper, the Raleigh Minerva.
North of Wheeler Place is the North Carolina State University conservatories and campuses as well as Lake Raleigh and Lake Johnson Nature Park. The Wheeler Place neighborhood is ideal for the history lover or the walking, nature explorer. Travel relief is provided with local Interstates 40 and 440. US Highway 1 is also close.
