Naming My Blog

Pinehurst Place

This column inspired the name of my blog, On Pinehurst Place, it is one of a pair that grace the entrance to the boulevard section of Pinehurst Street.

Pinehurst Place

 I live in Jackson, Mississippi in the Belhaven neighborhood

The area was far north of what was the downtown hub of the city

until after the destruction of the civil war.

 People began moving farther north after the war and Belhaven College was built in 1894.

 The area around the school became known as the Belhaven neighborhood and eventually just Belhaven.

Pulitzer Prize winning author Eudora Welty’s family built one of the first houses on Pinehurst Street in 1925Eudora Welty House

 Their home is now a museum, The Eudora Welty House Museum, and is operated by the Mississippi Department of Archives and History.

My house is three blocks west of the Welty house and is located in the boulevard section of the street known as Pinehurst Place.

 807 Pinehurst Place was designed by A. Hays Town and built in 1931 and is constructed of poured concrete.

I am writing about topics covering the neighborhood, reading and writing,

style and design, and entertaining.  I would love it if you came along with me!
