Hillsborough Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 7 photos

Hillsborough, the seat of Orange County, was the scene of many dramatic events prior to the Revolutionary War and during the Civil War. Its lovely downtown historic district--often called a "museum without walls"--features more than 100 late 18th and early 19th century homes, churches and buildings, several of which are open to the public. Because it's compact and very scenic, it's a perfect place to take a leisurely walking tour. The town also has a thriving antiques center with more than 30 shops, an active Native-American community and arts, history and business organizations that love to sponsor festivals. The largest is the annual Hog Day Festival at which more than 15,000 people enjoy more than two tons of North Carolina barbecue!
