Aberdeen, North Carolina is in Moore County in the south-central portion of NC, with a population of 3,400. It is part of the renowned Sandhills area and shares its highlights and attractions with other nearby towns and cities such as Southern Pines, with golf courses and trendy shops.
The “other” Aberdeen is quaint little railroad town steeped in history. If not for the railroads running through Aberdeen after the Civil War, the town and area might not be as it is today. The railroads helped to re-establish commerce after the area's labor force was decimated by the losses of the Civil War. As early as 1895, design and construction of a resort community that would be called Tuttown began; it is now known as Pinehurst. From that time on, Aberdeen was a mixture of resorts, farming and industrial pursuits. That combination helped the area weather WW II and the Great Depression.
A cornerstone of the area and a major attraction is The Malcolm Blue Farm. The 7.5-acre farm is the site of one of the largest and most popular traditional festivals in the region. The Malcolm Blue Historical Crafts and Farm skills Festival is held annually on the last weekend of September. Approximately 1,500 schoolchildren visit the farm during School Children’s Day each year to learn what daily life and work was like in the 19th century. Some of the crafts and skills demonstrated are pottery, basket weaving, woodworking, blacksmithing, spinning, weaving, and soap and candle making. The festival has become one of the best intergenerational events in North Carolina.
The Malcolm Blue Farm is a Community Heritage Project, certified by the Regional History Sites Program of the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources. The Society received the Governor’s “Take Pride in North Carolina” Award in 1995, the only group in NC to be so honored. The farm and museum have been designated by the North Carolina Civil War Tourism Council as part of the North Carolina Civil War Theme Trails and the National Civil War Trails. The 1825 farmhouse is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of the Interior.
