As part of the Friends of the Mountains to Sea Trail’s, “MST in a Day” at the Eno River Farmer’s Market, Trading Path Association Founder and CEO Tom Magnuson will lead a stroll through Hillsborough of the 1700s. This tour will visit several places downtown where visitors witness buildings and sites of significance during the War of the Regulation and Revolutionary War era Hillsborough.

The Association’s mission is to preserve, study, and promote the remnants of the historic Trading Path which once connected the Chesapeake country with towns in the Carolinas and Georgia. The tour begins at the Alliance for Historic Hillsborough’s table at the Eno River Farmer’s Market, 144 E. Margaret Lane. Tickets are $12 per person, with half of all proceeds contributing to the ongoing work of the Trading Path Association.
