  • My wife and I are new to the area, so we stopped by to learn about Hillsborough. The young lady in there, I think her name was Ann, from Chapel Hill, had studied History, was so warm, friendly and informative. We talked about the history of the area for quite awhile, and even discussed Silent Sam. Since General Johnston stayed in the house the Visitor Center is in during his surrender to General Sherman, we discussed both men and she was well informed about Sherman, she had read a book about him. I highly recommend anyone stop there even if you are just visiting for the day or, like my wife and I, have moved to the area. You will learn about all of the great historic sites in Hillsborough, get pamphlets, and learn about upcoming events.
  • Small, pleasant visitor center with nice selection of brochures and items for sale. Take the time to watch the video. It's well worth it.
