The Tufts Archives preserves the unique history of Pinehurst, North Carolina from its founding in 1895 to the present. The archives, located in a wing of the Given Memorial Library on the Village Green in Pinehurst, was built in 1975. Its creation was spurred by Richard S. Tufts, grandson of the founder of the village. He created the Tufts Foundation, which provided the funding for the construction of the archives and provided an endowment for its continued operation. Tufts Archives is a private institution and open to scholars and the public Monday through Friday from 9:30 AM until 5:00 PM and from 9:30 AM until 12:30 PM on Saturday.
