Open House Report

Scouts Raise Flag at Historic Hoyle Homestead Open HouseOn Saturday, September 14 the Hoyle Historic Homestead held its 22nd Annual Open House at the homestead, 1214 Dallas Stanley Highway, Dallas, NC. The event was a great success, and about 300 people attended. The festivities began with a flag raising
by Boy Scout Troop 45.

Attendees enjoyed 10 exhibitors, which included most local and regional historical and genealogical societies and museums. Many books were purchased and contacts were made. Those attending enjoyed house tours, which featured restorations inside. In addition they observed the area where an archeological dig, and the Gas House has been proposed. Of special interest this year was the Genealogy Table led by Greg Payseur. The lines were long to learn about relatives and to make new acquaintances.

Soldiers of the Cross provided our music and everyone enjoyed and appreciated them. At 11:00 Robert Carpenter, chair of HHH, delivered the annual report. Pat Rhyne Rudisill then reported the Long Range Plan. She solicited attendees to complete a survey to provide input on the direction for future progress at the Hoyle Historic Homestead.

Following the program, a delicious lunch of hot dogs was enjoyed until all were Archeological Dig at Hoyle Historic Homesteadgone!
