TGIF! 45 min Hillsborough History Walking Tour

  • Hillsborough Visitor's Center 150 East King Street Hillsborough, NC, 27278 United States (map)

THANK GOODNESS IT'S FRIDAY! Experience Historic Hillsborough in this condensed but equally informative walking tour with Amanda Prescott. 

The tour begins at a late eighteenth century Quaker farmhouse known as the “Alexander Dickson House”, which once served as the headquarters of Confederate General Joseph E. Johnston in the closing days of the Civil War. The house now serves as Hillsborough’s Visitors Center and the offices of the Alliance for Historic Hillsborough.

The tour ends just in time for you to grab dinner and check out live music and art at Hillsborough's Last Friday Art Walk from 6-9pm!

Meet your Tour Guide, Johanna Addison: "Ever since I could remember, I have loved history and growing up in such a historic town as Hillsborough was definitely a big part of it. I’ve been volunteering at the Alliance for Historic Hillsborough for almost 4 years now and was lucky enough to be the summer intern at the Alliance last year. I’m a to be public history major at Appalachian State and a graduate of Middle College High School at DTCC. When I’m not volunteering at the alliance, I’m usually hiking or riding horses as well as my favorite hobby, being a Revolutionary War reenactor. I hope you all enjoy the tour!"
