Historic Hillsborough Walking Tour

March 25, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Experience America’s history through the unique perspective of one of North Carolina’s oldest and historically significant small towns, with a guided walking tour of downtown Hillsborough. Established in 1754 as the seat of government for Orange County, Hillsborough’s colonial legacy and signs of its importance in North Carolina and American history can be seen everywhere.

The tour begins at a late eighteenth century Quaker farmhouse known as the “Alexander Dickson House”, which once served as the headquarters of Confederate General Joseph E. Johnston in the closing days of the Civil War. The house now serves as Hillsborough’s Visitors Center and the offices of the Alliance for Historic Hillsborough.
$6 per person, free for children under 12. Tickets can also be purchased in person at the Hillsborough Visitor’s Center
150 E. King St.
Hillsborough, NC 27278
