Alston House Heritage Project

About this collection

House in the Horseshoe, also known as the Alston House, is a historic home in Sanford, North Carolina in Moore County. The house was owned by Philip Alston during the American Revolution. 

This collection is a representation of a proposed larger collection of artifacts of the descendants of Philip Alston. The uniqueness of this collection lies in the fact that most genealogical collections are text only. This proposed collection shall also contain artifacts in the form of photos, letters, 3D items, video/audio recordings, newspaper articles, etc. that have been solicited from descendants of Philip Alston. Therefore, the content shall give a fuller picture of each person and his/her genealogical record.

Said artifacts shall be digitized and made freely available on the House in the Horseshoe website through its Genealogy link, in keeping with the Mission and Vision of the Division of State Historic Sites and Properties.

 

Our Mission

 

The Division of State Historic Sites and Properties preserves, operates, and interprets significant historic sites, enabling visitors to explore North Carolina’s rich and diverse heritage in an engaging, relevant manner.

 

Our Vision

 

To be a leader in the promotion of the state’s history and heritage tourism through a commitment to excellence in scholarship, historic resource management, and innovative programming.

 

* * Note: House in the Horseshoe is an actual historic site; however, it does not have a Genealogy link nor does it have plans to build a collection of artifacts from the descendants of Philip Alston. The collection created herein is for the purpose of an LIS 644 digital library project.
