The Malcolm Blue Farm & Museum A trip down the old Pee Dee Road (now Bethesda Road) transports visitors back to a time when the Sandhills were known as the “Pine Barrens.” Built around 1825, this antebellum farm has been recognized by the National Register of Historic Places for its authenticity and uniqueness. Preserving a significant piece of rural history in Moore County, the farmstead features structures of cultural and architectural importance, such as the farmhouse and barns, the old gristmill, and a wooden water tower. The house is filled with authentic furnishings that reflect everyday life during the 1800s. The grounds are shaded with 100 year old Darlington oaks.Three annual events are offered: The Malcolm Blue Historical Crafts and Farmskills Festival, held the last weekend of September, The Bluegrass Festival in the summer, and Christmas Open House held on the second Sunday in December.
