Redefining Small-Town Charm

Just steps away from Occoneechee Mountain State Park, tucked along the banks of the Eno River and a short trip from Durham, Raleigh and Chapel Hill, sits the town of Hillsborough.

Hillsborough's storied history serves as a foundation for the town's dynamic future. An epicenter for arts and culture, home to an award-winning culinary scene, and surrounded by the scenic sights of the Piedmont, Hillsborough's cozy population of 6,000 is redefining the meaning of small-town charm.

Take a stroll down the Riverwalk that meanders along the banks of the Eno River, indulge in the farm-to-fork dining experiences provided by local farms, or view regional and national art at one of the town’s six art galleries — Hillsborough contains multitudes, just waiting to be explored.
