Back in the late 1700s, Charles Hurd and Nicholas Smith received land grants from the king of England, and the area we now call Whispering Pines was born.
The Village was founded in 1959 and was the first to be incorporated by an act of the N.C. General Assembly in 1969.
Whispering Pines residents come from many different places, but they all share a desire to preserve the quiet, tranquil Village environment they enjoy.
From the moment visitors enter Whispering Pines, they can see and feel that it is a special place. Eight lakes offer their special beauty, and three championship golf courses are among the best in the Sandhills.

Whispering Pines History
Back in the late 1700s, Charles Hurd and Nicholas Smith received land grants from the king of England, and the area we now call Whispering Pines was born. Many others bought and sold the area’s properties and lakes throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, but it was A.B. Hardee who realized the land’s ultimate potential when he purchased 400 acres in 1959.
Hardee developed his tract into a private golf course and residential community, and in just ten years, Whispering Pines became the first municipality in North Carolina to be designated as a village. Today, Whispering Pines covers over 2,000 acres, features six lakes, sixteen miles of paved roads, two semi-private golf courses and an abundance of pristine stands of pines and hardwoods. In addition, there are a number of quaint small towns throughout Moore County where you can enjoy the timeless traditions of southern hospitality.
