GRIMSLEY T. HOBBS, AIA (1946-)
Hobbs grew up Chapel Hill and lived in the famous Gimghoul Castle a few years while his father was studying at Duke. His family then moved to Indiana where they lived in an old grist mill. Hobbs returned to NC and graduated with a BA in History from UNC-Chapel HIll in 1973 and a MA in Architecture from NCSU in 1979.
He interned with Henry Flynn and Associates in Goldsboro. When Gary Partin and Hobbs left Flynn in 1982, he was in business as Partin-Hobbs in Goldsboro until it closed in 2005. He is now principal at Hobbs Architects of Pittsboro with son Taylor.
