Historic Storefronts, Pinehurst

Kirby Maples writes: The atmosphere in downtown Pinehurst was indeed “thriving” back in the ’70s when Snelling’s was a general purpose store selling groceries, clothes, hardware, etc. Reed’s Peanut place was doing a lot of business, as well as, Grigg’s Gin, Robert’s general store, & Davis Gun Shop. There was also an ice cream store downtown for a brief while called the “Dairy Dream”. And the Bank of Pinehurst was drawing a few people downtown too. I worked at Dairy Dream and at Snelling’s back in ’74-’75. Riding through downtown on a Saturday now is nothing like it used to be.
