For those of you who have been asking, “When is there going to be another open house at Clemmons’ oldest house?,” your wait is over.
Clemmons Historical Society invites you and your friends to a “Unique Open House” at the 1798 Philip Hoehns (Hanes) House and Farm located at 3550 Middlebrook Drive in Clemmons.
Mark your calendar for Sunday, Oct. 27, from 2-4 p.m. so you won’t forget.
Many things have changed both inside and out.
Avid preservationists, Tom Gray and Paul Zickell, owners and residents of Clemmons’ oldest home, will share their restored home, sculpture gardens and collections of American and North Carolina Antiques.
Named “Middlebrook Farm” by previous owners. P. Huber Hanes Jr. and Jane Hanes, the property was the birthplace of the expansive Hanes family. They were once farmers of 2,000 acres, brandy distillers, tavern keepers and millers in 18th century Piedmont North Carolina.
There is no cost for society members. Non-members may join or donate on the day of the event. Memberships are $10 for adults, $5 for seniors 65+, $12 for students, $25 for businesses, and $75 for life memberships.
Donations are appreciated from those who would like to attend the open house but do not wish to become active society members.
This is an event you do not want to miss!
