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.

Abstract:
In 1895 and 1896, retired Boston merchant James W. Tufts bought Moore County land to develop the Sandhills Village of Pinehurst. He did not intend it for golf, but rather as a warm climate resort for retirees and for those in ill health. He added a golf course when his Northern guests began arriving with their golf clubs and looking for a course to play. Master golf architect Donald Ross designed the course, and Pinehurst began its rise to one of the top golfing destinations in the world. Pittard discusses Pinehurst's early history and memorable golfing moments.

Abstract:
People associate golf with town of Pinehurst; however, there was more than one game in town. In 1895, the first resort guests played tennis. The resort's founder, James Walker Tufts, preferred to play roque, a game akin to croquet. Other activities included lawn bowls, badminton, table tennis, polo matches, harness races, steeplechases, archery, fox hunting, and skeet shooting. Legendary sharpshooter Annie Oakley lived at The Carolina Hotel from 1916 to 1922. She gave shooting exhibitions and taught approximately 15,000 men and women how to shoot.
