What a gem in the middle of the Village! Pinehurst's history is fascinating, from the invention of the soda fountain, to a health resort, to golf. Sounds like an odd road, doesn't it?

This was such a treasure to find tucked in the back of the local library. Being a history buff, I loved looking through their rich collection of artifacts from such a special and unique town in America.
