McLauchlin-McFadyen House

and Parker-Ray House

The Raeford-Hoke Museum is proud to have two Colonial homes on the grounds.  The McLauchlin-McFadyen House is a neoclassical revival design with 6000 square feet of heated space filled with many area antiques.


The Parker-Ray House was built in 1899 and relocated from Fayetteville Road after having been donated by Richard Neely and Suzanne Neely Bridges. The house  has been renovated to early 1900s style

The mission of the Raeford-Hoke Museum is to preserve the history, culture, and artifacts of the local area.  We also seek to increase public awareness of the heritage of Hoke County and the surrounding towns, through preservation, documentation, and display of historical artifacts and information.


The McLauchlin-McFadyen house, nestled on a five-acre, tree-lined lot was built in 1905.  It opened to the public as a museum in 2002 and over the years has expanded to included 1921 fire truck, emergency and agricultural equipment, a building filled with antique dolls, a one-room schoolhouse, a smokehouse, and a country store.  At the rear of the property rests the Parker-Ray House, a wonderful two-story home renovated to its early 1900s glory. The Raeford-Hoke Museum buildings are packed with historical artifacts, photographs, and even an expansive collection of genealogical records.  The museum property is located in the town of Raeford, North Carolina, which is one of the most intact railroad towns in south-central, North Carolina containing a mix of commercial buildings and homes displaying a style reminiscent of the prospering town from the 1910s-1920s.


The Raeford-Hoke Museum and the Parker-Ray House are available for rental.  Please contact the Museum Curator for more information.
