THK PILOT, a Paper With Character^ Aberdeen, North C^aronna
Securing Pinedale Home Sites
John G. Hemmer, the Pinehurst photographer, knows a good thing when he sees it. He has been accumulating
Pinedale building sites until some time ago he had acquired four desirable locations. A few days ago he came in to pick
out two more, and now he has six. He expects to build shortly. Mr. Hemmer says there is nothing extraordinary about the
transaction. He simply figures that at the price Pinedale is a good, investment.
And speaking of price, these building sites, of about three-fourths of an acre each are selling at from $600 to $700,
owing to location. Everybody says these prices are'low, and they are considering that each location sold is about the size'
that would make four ordinary lots of 50 by 160 or six lots of 50 by 100, but this price is to stand for a while. Later it
will advance as the number grows less and the demand becomes more imperative, but for the present remember $600 to
$700, and nothing like them for the money any place in the Sandhills.
On the eastern edge of Pinehurst, in the triangle between the Midland road and the Seals road, and the land now
developing under Mr, Manning just to the east.
Every advantage worth having, and close to all centers.
