An example of the various materials of different textures and patterns used in the old buildings at Hart Square (A village from the 1800s preserved in its entirety right here in the hills of Hickory, North Carolina.)
Kudos to Bob Hart, a doctor, who has been going and going for 40 years now on this land. He’s gathered 100 buildings from the surrounding counties and moved them to this 200-acre haven. He’s stuffed the cabins with beds, chairs, food, dresses, shoes, brooms, medicine. Each structure represents a part of this village he calls Hart Square.
I hope you enjoyed this series on the amazing buildings and structures at Hart Square.
