The Hickory Landmarks Society - preserving our community since 1968



2020 marks the 50th Anniversary of the relocation and restoration of the landmark 1882 J. Summie Propst House. We are pleased to share with you a priceless series of recent audio recordings, recollections by actual founders or their children in a remarkable preservation effort that inspired the founding of the Hickory Landmarks Society. A video production of the actual restoration is now available to you for the first time. For some wonderful nostalgia, great local history, and more than a little fun click here

2020 Home and Garden Tour Cancelled

The Hickory Landmarks Society’s Board of Directors has cancelled the re-scheduled September 17-18 Romance of the Home and Garden tour fundraiser. 

Governor Cooper’s extension of the proclamation that no large gatherings in North Carolina be held, the general need for social distancing, and conditions in Catawba County were keys to the decision. HLS needed to make a responsible decision immediately on behalf for everyone’s health, safety, and liability.    

To everyone who is interested and has enjoyed our past tours, thank you for your understanding and patience. The lost income has strained our financial resources for operations.  Please continue to support us during our Membership Drive beginning September 15th.
