About This Walk

Join us on a guided walk thru the historic Village of Pinehurst.

We will start at the Carolina Hotel, a magnificent four-story Colonial Revival Opened on January 1, 1901, it was the largest frame hotel in North Carolina of its time. With a wrap-around porch and double cupola, the hotel is an architectural marvel. Parking is free in the hotel parking lot.

After seeing the Carolina Hotel, we will take a short walk along tree-lined sidewalks to the historic section of the Village of Pinehurst. The route is flat and easy to walk – but wear comfy shoes.

We will make stops to see the Casio Building and Magnolia Inn before ending up in the heart of the Village of Pinehurst.

There, you can imagine what it would have been like in 1895 when James Walker Tufts for his New England-style village. We will go into the Holly Inn, the first hotel opened on New Year’s Eve 1895. Across the street, the Given Memorial Library/Tufts Archives will be next.  Then, a short walk across the Village Green will lead us to the Theater Building and Pinehurst Visitors Center. If time permits, we will take a short walk to the Pine Crest Inn,

I’ve been told that all good photowalks end with a fabulous meal, and the Villager Deli will not disappoint. They offer standard American food with indoor and outdoor seating. The grilled Rubin is awesome!

The photwalk is open to anyone, no matter what camera you have. No camera snobs here. Point and shoot, cell phone, DSLR or Mirrorless. I’m a Nikon Z7 Guy, but don’t let that stop you. haha Wear comfy shoes. Did I say that already? Also, remember the put the SD card in your camera (Yes, I’ve done that), format the card, charge the battery, and lets have some fun!
