One of the best places to visit in Southern Pines is Gulley’s Garden Center. It’s more than your typical store with mulch, plants, and flower pots. It has been family owned and operated since 1974. Gulley’s is practically a separate world off Broad Street and the perfect place for exploring and daydreaming. It is also conveniently across the railroad tracks from the best coffee shop in town.
Gulley’s does have all of the garden supplies you could want, but there are also collections of rusted old farm equipment, historic gas pumps, many, many colorful flower pots, a windmill, a historic cottage with a military museum on the second floor, curved walkways to meander about, and the world’s largest private collection of “ole-time” wash pots. Aside from all of this, there is a Christmas Shop filled to the brim with anything and everything you need to decorate your tree and house.
It’s more fun to look at the photographs, so see below! Click on the photographs to view a larger version.
And these pictures are only a small portion of Gulley’s! This is small town America at it’s finest.
