As a part of the 145th anniversary of the end of the Civil War, Hillsborough will be partnering with the Chapel Hill Preservation Society to host its own commemorative event on April 24th. There will be two available tours, one starting at 12pm and one starting at 2pm. The tours will last approximately one hour. Tours begin at the Dickson House (Hillsborough Visitor’s Center), at 150 E. King St in Hillsborough. For more information please contact the Orange County Historical Museum at 919-732-2201.
