Hoyle Historic Homestead Celebrates 2013 Open House

On Saturday, September 14 the Hoyle Historic Homestead held its 22nd Annual Open House at the homestead, 1214 Dallas Stanley ghway, 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.

The band, 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 gone! The Open House was deemed a great success because so many attendees remained to enjoy the Historic House and Grounds and one another.

Special thanks are delivered to Robert Hayes, Open House Chair; Mt. Holly Historical Society; Gaston County Museum of Art and History; Broad River Genealogical Society; Bob and Elizabeth Atterberry, our hot dog chefs; Jim Love; Greg Payseur; Gaston Lincoln Genealogical Society; Schiele Museum of Natural History & Planetarium; Gaston County Historical Society; BSA Troop 45; Dallas Renovators; Dallas Courthouse Restoration Committee; Belmont Historical Society; all HHH Board members and friends who labored to plan, set up, and take down for the event.
