VILLAGE OF PINEHURST, NORTH CAROLINA PROPERTY EST. 1895 • NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES Founded in 1895, Pinehurst Resort is known as The Cradle of American Golf, and is a quintessential destination with three historic hotels, a wealth of recreational activities, and 2,000 breathtaking acres. Set in one of America’s National Historic Landmark Districts, Pinehurst recalls a pleasant time gone by. Pinehurst Resort and its village were originally designed as a health retreat amid towering pins and mild Southern breezes. Wide verandas, afternoon tea, walking trails, and bucolic pathways meander through the quaint New England-style village, which is full of shops, galleries, and other historic and cultural attractions.
