Moore County Historical Association: “Then and Now A Photo History of Southern Pines” Exhibit
November 20, 2023 @ 1:30 pm
Stop by to view a special Southern Pines exhibit presented by the Moore County Historical Society, “Then and Now A Photo History of Southern Pines.”
“Was Southern Pines always the way it is today? Pretty much so, with the exception of sand roads and wild pigs running around in the yards and downtown. The historical association will host a new exhibit “Southern Pines Then and Now.” The exhibit will feature photographs taken 100 years ago and what the same area looks like today. Thanks to the town’s preservation efforts, you will be amazed at the number of structures that are still here and thriving. One photo of special importance is a 1920 photograph of the Boyd family and hounds, passing the 1820 Shaw House. So it is more than just the structures but the organizations especially our equestrian community that still thrives and is an essence of the town.”
The exhibit will be available for viewing this year at the Southern Pines Water Department. While you are there, did you ever wonder what was in that location 120 years ago? Visit the Southern Pines Post Office to view an exhibit on one of the largest hotels in Moore County, located right here. Admission is free to visit these exhibits, weekdays 8:30am-5:00pm.
