About historic Hillsborough


Hillsborough, NC has been called a museum without walls, because its historic district is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and boasts more than 100 late 18th and early 19th Century structures.


The Old Orange County Courthouse, built in 1844, has been cited by the Library of Congress as one of the finest examples of Greek-Revival architecture in the United States.


Today, Hillsborough is a premier tourist destination and is home to numerous notable contemporary artists and writers. The historic district is a vibrant cultural center that includes fine restaurants, independent bookstores, fine art galleries, museums and numerous historic sites all within walking distance of the public sculpture site on the Riverwalk.

The Hillsborough Arts Council would like to thank all the members of the Sculpture Tour Committee and acknowledge the vision of Gail Cooley, the exhibitions founder and coordinator.
