By comparison Maple Grove is really a farm house, and the Harper House is most certainly a city house. The pair make for an interesting visit to different parts of Hickory history.

Very knowledgeable director of Hickory Landmarks Society met with us here to share details of the house, its owners and its restoration. Most enjoyable: anecdotes about what treasures were left behind! I highly recommend this attraction!

Docents were very generous with information about the house and original family, and could not have been more welcoming. Well thought out and informative brochure for self-guided tour. Love the history. Fine example of a home of this era. Did I mention it is free!!
