If you are interested in more than golf, the Tufts Archives is fascinating. This beautiful museum tells the story of the founders of Pinehurst. As my mother was born in old Pinehurst, I found it very intriguing. My grandfather worked at the old Pinehurst Dairy, and I think I even spotted him in some of the photos.

Tufts Archives houses the history of Pinehurst in pictures and print. It is a wonderful collection of the memorabilia from the early days through the 50's and 60's. While most of us think 'Golf' when we think of Pinehurst, it was started as a place for consumptives to recuperate (until they discovered Tuberculosis was contagious). The Pinehurst Resort had a...

Not what I expected to find in the back of the local library. Everything and anything you would want to know about Pinehurst history can be found here. The volunteers are fantastic. Yes, it does have golf history, but it has so much more!

I enjoyed hearing the history of Pinehurst from the Manager of the library. What a helpful gentleman. Good supply of books in a beautiful surrounding.

This is a delightful museum and archive. The displays are interesting and informative - I learned a lot about the area and enjoyed taking to the very knowledgable staff and volunteers. The library that houses the archive would be a comfortable place to curl up with a book on a cold or rainy day.

Disguised as the public library, the section in the back has some wonderful family and Pinehurst artifacts for the history buff. They have the entire history of the building of the resort recorded in files of letters and documents saved by the family. Neat displays!

Necessary for golf or Pinehurst buffs. Perfect location as part of walking tour of the village. Great place to cool off or warm up - you'll be glad you visited.

A great collection of memorabilia of James Walker Tufts and Donald Ross, and many original Ross plans rescued from the local dump after Diamondhead Corp disposed of them.

Took a few minutes to drop by the Tufts Archives on a Saturday morning. The Archives are across the road from the Holly Inn and in the same building as the library. Just go through the library to the back room and that's where the Archives are located. The history of Pinehurst is laid out in many ways, through photos,maps,newspapers,and... More
