The Hickory Landmarks Society - preserving our community since 1968



2020 marked 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

2021 Heritage Days at Maple Grove Cancelled

The Hickory Landmarks Society’s Board of Directors has cancelled the 2-day Heritage Days at Maple Grove school program for April 2021.   Remote learning and the needs of future in-school instruction have resulted in the likelihood for cancellation of field trips by many school districts. HLS regrets the practical and logical decision to delay the 27th annual program until April 2022.  The health and safety for teachers, bus drivers, volunteers, and above all fourth grade students is paramount.
