Description 

The Pinehurst Historic District, a planned recreational resort community comprises a network of curvilinear roads embracing the village green; late Victorian, Colonial Revival and Bungalow-style hotels, cottages, stores, and churches; golf courses, tennis courts, bowling greens, and croquet courts; and horse stables and a race track. From its founding in 1895, the captains of American commerce, finance and industry, their families and friends sought recreational pleasures at Pinehurst which become the model for a subsequent generation of like resorts. Its creation and integrity today as a remarkably intact recreational resort reflects the genius of the Tufts family of Boston, the designers, and Donald James Ross who designed and refined the resort's golf courses. -- National Historic Landmark statement of significance, June 19, 1996
