Shop the historic district of Southern Pines on Broad Street between Connecticut and Indiana, on both sides of the railroad tracks. Trees, flowers and courtyards grace the specialty shops, galleries and cafes for a lovely village atmosphere.
Nearby Weymouth Center for the Arts & Humanities started as the home of James and Katharine Boyd and is now a cultural center dedicated to conserving the remaining 26-acre estate.
It serves as a natural preserve and park and includes the formal gardens and the longleaf pine forest. In addition, the 9,000 square foot Boyd House serves as a writers residency, a site for poetry readings, dramatic performances, musical concerts, and recitals.
James Boyd’s study is now home to the North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame, established in 1996. The center is open year-round and even leads to the Boyd Round Timber Tract of Weymouth Woods.
