The Friends of The Page-Walker Hotel is a group of dedicated volunteers that provides vital services to the town and citizens of Cary. Acting as stewards for the building and grounds of the Page-Walker Arts & History Center is only part of our mission. We also work to preserve other historic structures, provide education about Cary history, maintain the Cary Heritage Museum, and promote cultural arts.
