Beginnings

Southern Pines is a town in the Sandhills area of North Carolina—site of ancient beach dunes from millennia past—whose first European inhabitants were Scotts and Irish. James T. Patrick, North Carolina's first commissioner of immigration, sought to develop the southern part of Moore County because of it's healthful climate. Patrick purchased 675 acres from Charles C. Shaw in 1884 and designed the town on a grid with the railroad passing through the center of town. Patrick nationally promoted it as a healthful retreat. In 1887, Charles Washington Shaw became its first mayor. [www.greatamericanstations.com, accessed May, 2012.]
