[ARCHIVED] Indian Trail to honor its past with Founders’ Day

Sally and Selkirk Hinson

It’s been 111 years since Indian Trail officially became “Indian Trail” – growing since then from a block around the railroad track at Indian Trail Road to the largest municipality in Union County. And the Town takes a moment every year to honor one of the families and individuals that helped Indian Trail become what it is today.

So on March 27 and again on March 31, the Town will honor a founding couple – Selkirk and Sally Hinson – for their contribution to Indian Trail.

Selkirk, a toolmaker who contributed to the war effort in World War II, met Sally in the 1930s, purchasing land in the area from Sally’s family and settled down with a 49-acre farm. They instilled in their children the belief that giving back to your community is of the utmost importance – something their son, Robert, has carried forward through his work with the Indian Trail Arts and Historical Society.

The Indian Trail Town Council will honor the Hinson family with a proclamation during their meeting on Tuesday, March 27, with the family in attendance. Then, on Saturday, March 31, a celebration open to the public will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Indian Trail Town Hall Cultural Arts Room. The celebration will include free coffee and cake, as well as “old-tyme” games, a presentation on the Town’s history, Hinson family memorabilia from throughout the 20th century, machinist tools like Selkirk would have used, and much more.

“Indian Trail is committed to remembering and honoring our past as we move rapidly into the future,” Susan Didier, Indian Trail program coordinator for arts and culture, said. “And what better way to do that than by celebrating the families who made Indian Trail such a great place to live? We hope families will come out to our event to learn all about the history of our Town so our youngest residents can learn all about how we got to where we are today.”
