The Corner of Wake Forest

Billy Farmer's rendering of the 1897 Powers Building, now the Corner of Wake Forest

My name is Marty Ludas and my wife Debbie and son Ben are proud to announce that the Powers Store built in 1897 will reopen again in 2019 as the Corner of Wake Forest. With the completed historic renovation, the Corner will be an event center for those planning a wedding, anniversary, pop up activity or even an impromptu surprise party for some unsuspecting friend or relative. And what a surprise this place can be for the fortunate and unsuspecting mark!
We have a special half-price offer for weddings booked before April 25, 2020! Saturday rate is $2,000. Sunday rate is $1,000.00. You will have complete access to the complex which includes the former 1897 Powers store, now the Corner, the courtyard and garden, bridal suite upstairs and the Powers/Dodd house for the groom's suite. Additionally there is a 10 car private lot for the family. You provide your own catering and bar services and we can make recommendations for you.   
Christmas Parties
We are currently taking Christmas party reservations for 2019. Week day rates are $275.00 for 5 hours. Evening weekday parties are $600 and weekend evenings are negotiable depending on attendance size.

Corner of Wake Forest Re-opening Day:
Billy Farmer Art Gallery and Christmas Music Celebration
In our first big event since reconstruction, we will be hosting legendary local musician and acclaimed artist Billy Farmer. He will have more than 60 original pieces of artwork on display and for sale. These paintings represent scenes and activities of the Wake Forest area and he collaborated with Marty Ludas on the varied subjects. Certainly a great opportunity to purchase a meaningful Christmas gift for that special person. Billy's artwork is stunning and will be on display for you to enjoy and purchase.
