Project Details

Kellam-Wyatt Farm is 59 acres and is located in east-central Wake County, near the border between Raleigh and Knightdale. The property was donated to Wake County with a conservation easement, which means the land is legally limited to certain uses that support conservation values such as open space, scenic views, habitat and watershed protection, preservation of rural character and agricultural production.

A public process is underway to develop a Kellam-Wyatt Farm vision and master plan that will protect the site’s natural and agricultural character while allowing for public access, education and recreation.
