The Southern Pines Land and Housing Trust Story

In 2009 Fred Walden formed Southern Pines Land and Housing Trust with a vision of West Southern Pines' future needs and the role that the Trust could play in meeting those needs of the community.

For Fred, the primary purpose of the Trust was to be an advocate and support for the citizens of the West Southern Pines Community.

Reestablished in 2018, the goal of the Southern Pines Land and Housing Trust is to continue the original vision in maintaining community-based traditions while creating opportunities for economic growth for the citizens of West Southern Pines and surrounding areas.

We acknowledge and honor all that Fred has done for his community and for bringing everyone together. The Trust is but one result of his efforts to provide the residents of West Southern Pines the opportunity to revitalize its historic community.
