Abstract:
Pinehurst has an equine tradition as well as a golfing one. Northerners who started visiting the village in 1910 also brought their horses. From that practice developed a race rack, stables, grandstand, and in 1917, a county fair. The Amphidrone, an 8,400-square-foot structure, was built for exhibitions. A tornado damaged it in 1932, and the building was later converted into a stable. In 1995, restoration began on the building, which is the state's oldest fair exhibition hall.
