In 1959, the John Motley Morehead Memorial Commission was established by Act of the General Assembly during the administration of Governor Luther Hodges for the purpose of acquiring title to or interests in property, both real and personal and to solicit, collect and expend funds for the acquisition, restoration, maintenance and operation of a memorial to John Motley Morehead in the City of Greensboro.
The Commission held title to Blandwood from 1967 till 2011. When the Commission turned title of Blandwood to Preservation Greensboro Incorporated, the Morehead Commission was dissolved.
The former Commission had 19 members and over half were appointed by the Governor.
