Historic Hickory: Maple Grove

In Hickory, North Carolina, Maple Grove, is one of the Catawba County Historical properties. For 120 years Hickory has been the Furniture Capital of the World. It is a delight of gracious homes.

Sadly, not all web sites were updated and I arrived to a closed home, however, the occupants answered the phone and guided me to other open sites in the area which will be told in future blogs, so Read On…

Lesson to all in a Pandemic: Call first!

Some history of the home.. Built in 1883 this Italianate style home has many original furnishings and period pieces according to their web site. In window peeks the home has much to offer and will return.

Always one to think a bad turn is never such, a sign on the property lawn intrigued me. The Hickory Landmark Society is having their Romance of the Garden Tour on May 22nd, 2021.. Check out their web site for more information and am hopeful to attend. See you there…

A picture from their web site… looks like a great tour
