The town is rich in history and downtown Wendell is a very well preserved historical district. The Town of Wendell started in the 1850’s when tobacco farmers in Granville County were hit with what came to be known as the Granville County Wilt. As this area grew, a small village was forming. The people in this area needed a name for their little town. They asked their schoolteacher, M.A. Griffin, to come up with a name for this area. Mr. Griffin loved the poet Oliver Wendell Holmes. He suggested that they call their town Wendell after the poet. However, the pronunciation of the town is different from the way one normally pronounces Oliver Wendell Holmes. After the train came to town, the porters on the train would call out “WENDELL.” They pronounced each syllable with emphasis. The townspeople picked up on this pronunciation, and it continues to this day. This area obtained a post office in 1891 and this first post office has been restored by the Wendell Historical Society, and it presently sits at the corner of Oakwood and 4th Streets. http://www.wendellhistoricalsociety.com/Pages/history.aspx
