The Star Hotel Bed & Breakfast is a historic site, completely renovated in 2004, located right in the southern heart of North Carolina. Built in 1896, The Star Hotel Bed and Breakfast was located at the junction of two major railways in North Carolina. Where the North/South railway met the East/West railway, many times the passengers would get off the train and would have to spend the night waiting for the train to pass the next day. Even though they didn’t call it a Bed & Breakfast back in those days, in essence, it was exactly that. People would spend the night, wake up and eat breakfast and take off again.  The Star Hotel Bed and Breakfast is the perfect place to stay, with Pinehurst and Troy only a short driving distance away as well as Charlotte, Greensboro, and Raleigh all within equal distance.

Strives to engage the community with artwork and artists of the highest caliber. Starworks is a project of Central Park NC.
In rural areas, residents often live in cultural deserts. Too often access to the arts is limited to a narrow range of artistic vision, vernacular imagery, and craft styles. Through strategic partnerships with other artists, arts organizations, and businesses, Starworks has been working to increase the diversity of artistic experiences available by bringing nationally and internationally known artists for demonstrations, classes, lectures and to make new works of art. Our programs are targeted to professional makers, with additional programming for young adults and children.
