Hillsborough, NC ~ The Ideal Authentic Small Town

Hillsborough, NC is an engaging mix of new and old. Founded in 1754, it encompasses 4.3 sq miles in Orange County, just west of the burgeoning college communities of Chapel Hill and Durham, NC and a short half hour drive from Raleigh's Research Triangle Park.

Relive History
If you want to re-live North Carolina history by walking, then downtown Hillsborough is the perfect place. Even earlier than its founding date, the town traces its history to a 1,000-year old Native American settlement. Important trading paths (which eventually became I-85) merged here and crossed the gentle Eno River. It served as home for the North Carolina State Legislature and was a center of political activity during the Revolutionary War years. Today historic monuments and signposts can be seen on nearly every street. More than 100 buildings and other structures from the 1700s and 1800s still remain here.

According to an article written in the Chapel Hill News in 2006 Hillsborough was considered for reconstruction by the Rockefeller family which eventually chose Williamsburg, Virginia. As the article stated "what's undeniably true, Hillsborough takes pride in its genuineness. "Who wants to be a reconstruction? We are real", said one long-term resident. "In vibrant contrast to the strip malls and urban complexes that stretch indiscriminately from state to state, there is a particularity to Hillsborough, a human scale to its brick storefronts and frame, 18th and 19th century houses that feels both authentic and local. You wouldn't be surprised to see Tom Sawyer whitewashing the Colonial Inn."

Lots to Do
Today's delightfully genuine local residents, which now number approximately 7,000, love to attend book lectures, participate in local parades, hike the nearby hills, relax and chat at sidewalk cafes, eat at local restaurants and attend outdoor music concerts. It is indeed a cosmopolitan village life in a unique town that houses four museums and where the arrival of tomato season is just as welcome as Tarheel basketball season in neighboring Chapel Hill.
