Hillsborough NC

A charming southern getaway. Hillsborough's historic architecture, scenic beauty, delicious restaurants, and unique shopping make it the perfect destination for the weekend...or longer!

Hillsborough NC's downtown historic district — listed on the National Register of Historic Places — features more than 100 homes, churches, school, and other structures from the late 18th and 19th centuries. Among those buildings open to the public are the Visitors Center, which served as Gen. Joseph E. Johnston's headquarters when he surrendered the largest of the Confederate armies to Gen. William T. Sherman, leading to the Civil War's end.

Today, Hillsborough is a tourist destination, a haven for artists and writers, and a wonderful place to live. The town is centrally located in North Carolina with fast access to the Triad and other Triangle cities. Interstate 85 runs through the town, and Interstate 40 is just south of its limits.

Barbecue lovers descend on the town each May for the annual Hog Day, and the downtown comes alive Friday evenings with arts and entertainment during Last Fridays celebrations. In addition to Revolutionary War reenactments and guided tours of the historic district, Hillsborough is home to Occoneechee Mountain State Natural Area and several other trails. New parks and public spaces are making our historic town even richer. Come see what is happening in Hillsborough!
