Horace Williams House reviews
Nice 1850's house (in need of some TLC) housing Preservation Chapel Hill. A volunteer will tell you about the house and it's history. They have free, rotating art exhibits in the Octagon room. This month they featured John Parkinson's wood furniture and Mary Kircher's tapestries. The exhibited work is beautiful. A visit doesn't take long and it is well worth your while.
What an amazing find this was! This museum really impressed me at both how much information was contained in such a small building, but also how knowledgeable the woman who gave me a tour was. It was really a beautiful and fascinating house with lots of local history contained within. I absolutely recommend checking this out whether you live in the area, are just visiting, or generally love quirky and local history!
