A group of prospective buyers is negotiating with L&S
Holdings (Laurinburg), owner of the property, to purchase Hayes Pond
(west of Maxton) and donate it to the town. The property would be managed
by Preserve Maxton, who would seek grant funding to establish a park.
Besides the 1958 Ku Klux Klan routing, the pond has been the site of
saw, flour, grist, and electricity-generating mills since before 1816.
GreenVest, a New Jersey company, completed a field
evaluation report on the property for L&S Holdings. The report praised
the property's historical significance, ecological value (especially
the wildlife and bird habitat), and recreational potential.
