Choose Southern Pines for Enriched Senior Living
Near the Cradle of American Golf
It’s amazing to think that what today is an epicenter for world-class golf and recreation was once just a sandy railroad stopover on the way to Florida. However, from humble beginnings in the late 1800s emerged Southern Pines, a town with rich cultural heritage and a literary history that is preserved to this day, with world-renowned authors including F. Scott Fitzgerald, Thomas Wolfe and others having written and socialized in Southern Pines’ more famous circles.
Here in the heart of North Carolina’s famed Sandhills region, Southern Pines, alongside our neighboring Pinehurst and Aberdeen, form what is known as the “Home of the US Open” and the “Home of American Golf.” Iconic major championship venues dot the landscape here, with stories and legends about the greatest players in the game gracing our area’s courses over multiple generations.
Indeed, life here beneath Carolina’s signature pines, and in the shadow of the famed Pinehurst Resort is rich with golfing tradition, but Southern Pines is also a fabulous place for nature, history and architecture buffs, and foodies and art lovers alike. Our historic downtown area is well-known for locally-owned shops and restaurants, and our many parks and quaint, tree-lined streets impart a small-town atmosphere that’s coveted by millions yet only enjoyed by the fortunate lot who proudly call Southern Pines their home.
For fun and entertainment, we recommend the Weymouth Center, whose restored house and gardens do much to tell the story of Southern Pines. Downtown is also home to the Sunrise Theater, and for visual art lovers, the area offers several galleries presented by the Arts Council of Moore County. The nearby Douglas Community Center is also a hub for recreation and special events geared towards active adults and seniors.
As you can see, for the familiar comforts of small-town living with rich history and modern-day possibilities, TerraBella Southern Pines provides a perfect setting for living well and enjoying life right here in the Sandhills of beautiful North Carolina.
