at the Red Lion Inn and Heaton Hall.
Since the Highland Pines Inn, de.
signed by Aymar Embury and con.
sidered one of the most attractive
hotel buildings in the south, was
completed some 15 years ago it has
been Southern Pines' leading hosteL
ry. Until the death three years ago
of Andrew I. Creamer the Inn was
under the management of Mr. Cream,
er and M, H. Turner, and since Mr.
Creamer’s death has been operated
by Mr. Turner. The new change .'n
management is believed due to Mr.
Turner’s health which prevented him
from devoting his entire time and en.
ergy to the Inn last winter.
