In the heart of North Carolina’s Sandhills, Southern Pines was settled in the early 1700s and remained small until the mid 1800s with the introduction of rail lines right through the center of town. Southern Pines was the perfect location between the North and Florida and with its surrounding pine forest, trade grew.
Today, the historic Weymouth Center provides a central meeting place and shares the rich literary and cultural heritage of the town. Tour any one of our historic cabins and houses or visit the North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame.
The mild winters and dry climate make Southern Pines an excellent location for outdoor activities year-round.

The historic Pinehurst Resort is only a few minutes away and features a variety of courses including Donald Ross’ Number 2 course and Jack Nicklaus’ Number 9 course.
