Hoyle Historic Homestead Celebrates 2012 Open House
On September 8, 2012, one of the largest audiences estimated at over 300 persons enjoyed hot dogs, house tours, an outstanding program, genealogy discussions, vendors and exhibitors, and Revolutionary re-enactors at our 21st annual Open House.
The beautiful day began with a Boy Scout flag raising ceremony. Visitors enjoyed the most recent renovation of the west side porch with the handicapped access ramp. They enjoyed the program led by the Colonial Dames.
In my estimation it was one of the most successful Open Houses I have ever experienced.
Robert Carpenter, Chairman
The house and outbuildings are on the site where Peiter Heyl was granted a land grant in 1754. The main house was built during the late 1700’s. It features rare corner post construction and is the only known remaining structure in North Carolina with this type of construction. This was also the site of Hoylsville, the first Federal Post Office in present day Gaston County.
The site was purchased by Historic Hoyle Homestead Inc., in 1991 to preserve and restore this very important part of regional history. In 1993, it was placed on the National Historical Register.
