This year, we celebrate our Semicentennial!  Since its incorporation in 1967, Hurt has been known and loved for its pleasant, family-friendly atmosphere and sense of community. 

A Semicentennial committee, composed of 7 citizens from diverse walks of life, is coordinating a series of events throughout the year for commemoration of our Golden Anniversary. 


Next event:   

Historical presentation at Town Hall on Sunday, November 5 at 2:00 p.m.  More information will be published as details are resolved, so please check this page periodically for updates. 


Happy Birthday and Anniversary from Richmond!
