Dubbed as ‘The Southern Part of Heaven,’ the town of Chapel Hill is famous for its quaint feel with a modern twist. Named after New Hope Chapel, the town’s first residents arrived in 1795. While the church is no longer standing, the legendary Carolina Inn now sits in its place as a reminder of its origins. 

Known for its stunning seasonal attributes, Chapel Hill makes it hard to ever want to leave. In the springtime, lovely woodland wildflowers can be found alongside gardens overflowing with multicolored azaleas. Greenways and deep-rooted trees line the sidewalks of the town, changing colors that stun as seasons pass by. Back in 1889, cutting down a tree in the town was punishable as a misdemeanor and came along with a $20 fine. Embracing its love for nature, Chapel Hill has continued to maintain its history by now focusing heavily on practices of sustainability and conservation.

Located 30 miles outside of the state capital of Raleigh, the town, along with the cities of Raleigh and Durham, compromise the well-known Research Triangle that has come to symbolize a place of technology and development-related companies. Chapel Hill is also home to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, which happens to be the oldest state-supported university in the United States.

In comparison to similarly sized towns on a national level, the town ranks in the top one percent for public transportation use, for having college educated adults and for having those who walk and bike to work. Chapel Hill also ranks in the top five percent of the state for having well-paid, single women and for median family incomes.
