This small museum has a great collection of golf and Pinehurst memorabila....the history of golf & golf course architect Donald Ross is on display. Additionally the archives has a treasure trove of old photos & golf information for anyone doing research on the history of golf and the Sandhills area. Beautifully displayed too.

Great but could be so much better. I think the village should buy it and improve it. Make it a pinehurst museum, move library somewhere else

In the small village of Pinehurst this is a must see. Take time to go to the local library in the heart of the village and in the back is a wonderful display of the villages history. How it came to be and one would be quite surprised with the memorabilia. Well informed docents are on hand to give you... More

Go for an appreciation of the local history and culture; it is so much more than the golf (although it is an important facet of the museum to be sure). Had an excellent docent with the manners of a wise & gentle teacher and the mind of a scientist.

It was recommended we stop at the Pinehurst Library to visit the Tufts Archives. We stopped and were not disappointed. If you like visiting places with good local history, this is a good spot right in beautiful downtown Pinehurst, North Carolina!

There are not a lot of locals who lives in the area but for someone who remembers the 50's these archives are a view into my memories. Stop in to learn what life was life before it became so popular as a retirement community.

Great place to spend a few hours, especially if you enjoy golf. You can tell the volunteers really enjoy their work. They can answer anything.
