The Walthour-Moss Foundation – Imagine a woodland where time has stood still and where nature is protected and will never fall victim to bulldozers and concrete. Imagine a place where the environment is preserved and exists as a sanctuary for wildlife and enjoyment for mankind. Such a paradise exists today.

The Walthour-Moss Foundation was established upon the death of William O. “Pappy” Moss to ensure the preservation of the open land that he and Virginia Walthour Moss so treasured. The Foundation is located in the Sandhills of North Carolina, one mile from the town of Southern Pines. It occupies over 4000 acres, virtually unspoiled by progress and development.

The Foundation was originally known for its equestrian use, which continues to attract world-class riders and drivers to its sandy lanes and trails. However, the implementation of proper silva culture and ecological practices have made the Walthour-Moss Foundation a true environmental preserve. The almost extinct red-cockaded woodpecker is making a strong comeback on these protected lands. Their habitats are tagged for study and monitoring by naturalists. The land is also home to many other varieties of birds, deer, raccoons, opossums, red and grey foxes, and rare fox squirrels.

The importance of The Walthour-Moss Foundation cannot be overstated and every year its existence becomes more critical. As acre after acre of unspoiled land becomes covered with homes, shopping centers, factories, and roads, there is less and less land which is so desperately needed for natural purposes. As an example, in the spring of 2005, the North Carolina Department of Transportation transferred 180 acres of environmentally-sensitive land north of Aiken Road to the care of The Walthour-Moss Foundation. In transferring this land to the Foundation’s care, the NC DOT found the Foundation to be “good stewards of the environment and the appropriate entity to care for this special piece of property.”

The historic steam plant provided power to the Village of Pinehurst at its inception in 1895. Overgrown and long abandoned, we saw a chance to bring the steam plant back to life. To provide a different kind of energy to the Village. A place where neighbors and friends can gather, share a beer, some great food and simply recharge their spirit.

During the extensive renovation, care was taken to maintain as much of the original building as possible. The façade and the unique brick corbeling has been preserved and the vintage arches and windows have all been restored. Inside the brewhouse, the brick walls remain blackened from the decades it housed massive steam boilers. Original valves and pipes have been repurposed as legs beneath tables, light fixtures above the booths or simply remain on the brick walls.

Outside, the smokestack that was taken down years ago has been rebuilt. The trellis above the beer garden is designed to mimic the train track that was used to deliver coal to the plant. The trellis is supported by the same pylons that held the track in the early 1900s.

Pinehurst Brewing Co. is a unique experience, made all the more so by the walls that surround it. We look forward to sharing our special home with you.

Located in the Village of Pinehurst, PBC occupies what was the original steam plant that powered the Village in 1895. Enjoy beer brewed on site and a diverse lunch and dinner menu. Don’t miss the barbecue and ribs from the smokehouse, seasoned and cooked to perfection.

WHAT IS STARWORKS ?

Starworks is our amazing creators behind our beautiful glass blown pinecones. Starworks is a project of Central Park NC, a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization based in rural central North Carolina. The mission of CPNC is to grow a new rural economy based on the sustainable use of the natural and cultural resources of the region. Starworks is an arts-centered work community that promotes community and economic development by providing outstanding artistic educational programs and business ventures. We strive to engage the community with artwork and artists of the highest caliber.

In rural areas, residents often live in cultural deserts. Too often access to the arts is limited to a narrow range of artistic vision, vernacular imagery, and craft styles. Through strategic partnerships with other artists, arts organizations, and businesses, Starworks has been working to increase the diversity of artistic experiences available by bringing nationally and internationally known artists for demonstrations, classes, lectures and to make new works of art. Our programs are targeted to professional makers, with additional programming for young adults and children. 

STARworks Glass is a public access glass studio that offers rental space for glass artists, classes and workshops for the general public, a resident artist and internship program, and high school and college glass curriculum. In addition to fundraisers like our Pumpkin Patch and Holiday Ornament Sale, STARworks Glass also holds free demonstrations on the second Thursday of each month at Hot Glass Cold Beer. Learn more.
