Hoyle Historic Homestead Celebrates Open House
Saturday, September 14, 2013 10:00-2:00
Once again we have the opportunity to join together to celebrate our heritage. Since last Open House, some positive changes have occurred. HHH has received a DAR grant to complete the flooring in the Main House. In addition because of your generous donations, we accumulated $2520.77 from the Gaston Community Foundation Run for the Money.
The Board has embarked on a number of projects. One project, which will not be completed by the Open House, involves the restoration of the tombstones from the old Hoyle Cemetery. Plans are in place, once we determine where they should be sited. A Long Range Planning effort is being chaired by Pat Rhyne Rudisill, who will provide more information in this Newsletter and at the Open House. Providing restrooms for the site remains a challenge, primarily because of funding. You will learn more about these plans.
Restoration of the downstairs Main House is in process. At the Open House you will be able to see the quality of the work completed so far. A flag-raising will begin the Open House. Again this year you will enjoy House Tours, Exhibitors from local societies and groups, book signing, food, music, and Re-enactors. The addition of a Genealogy Table will allow Hoyle descendants to compare notes and discuss kinship. At approximately 11:00am a brief program will inform attendees of the Long Range Planning process. Last year’s Open House was one of the best attended. Make your plans to see what is new, what is planned, and how you may assist to re-create the Hoyle Historic Homestead.
I look forward to seeing each of you on Saturday, September 14 – Robert Carpenter, Board Chairman
