The history of Thagards Lake in Whispering Pines goes back to the colonial days. Many Moore County towns can trace their history to land grants, including Whispering Pines. Charles Hurd received a land grant from the king of England for 100 acres, in 1759, on the south side of the lake. And ten years later, Nicholas Smith had a grant for 50 acres of land on the north side of the lake. Smith built a dam and mill on the lake that was located on his property. The lake was the distinctive part of this parcel of land.
John Ray eventually bought the land on the north and south side of the lake. In 1865 William C. Thagard bought the lake and the surrounding property. A. B. Hardee bought the lake and more then 400 surrounding acres in 1959, knowing that water has a great appeal. As a Real Estate agent, Hardee decided he would develop this land into a private golf course and residential area. In only ten years Whispering Pines was incorporated. This made the residents very proud of their town. This charter made Whispering Pines the first municipality in the state to be officially designated as a village.
By the time development was finished, Whispering Pines covered over 2,000 acres with six lakes and sixteen miles of paved roads. Today you can enjoy the picturesque lakes or just listen to the wind whisper through the pines. There are six lakes surrounded by residences and two semi-private golf courses. Whispering Woods and Whispering Winds are part of Whispering Pines. The village continues to be a community to both the young and the retirees.
