WHAT WE DO
We work to inspire visitors and residents to enjoy all that Hillsborough has to offer. We manage the Hillsborough Visitors Center and Gift Shop at the Historic Alexander Dickson House. We also serve as the primary resource for visitor information, create and distribute brochures and handouts to visitors, and work the Tourism Board to develop and manage an active publicity program to promote Hillsborough.
We provide educational programs for local public, private, and home school groups. These include small group tours as well as special programs dedicated to the town of Hillsborough and its history. We also provide a variety of guided tours focused on experiencing America’s history through the unique perspective of one of North Carolina’s oldest and historically significant small towns. Additionally, we produce several special events each year that focus on the history, vibrancy and beauty of Hillsborough.
We encourage people to experience authentic Hillsborough. We collaborate with Hillsborough’s historical sites, town government, and local citizens to advocate for sustainable preservation of important historical community assets. We also serve as stewards of the Alexander Dickson House, one of Hillsborough's oldest and most historically important buildings.
