Walking Tours of Chapel Hill

In addition to the self-guided tour of of the downtown area and Franklin-Rosemary Historic District, which begins at the Horace Williams House (guides are available on the table by the front door), Preservation Chapel Hill is delighted to offer two new walking tour options in collaboration with some of Chapel Hill's finest!

Heart of the Hill Tours 

PCH has joined hands with Chapel Hill Historical Society and Missy Julian Fox to offer tours developed in response to Mayor Hemminger's call to celebrate "Chapel Hill: 1820-1920."

Spring in Chapel Hill is magical...and a beautiful time of year to experience our town in a new way and to learn something new together!  Please check out our new spring schedule and sign up when registration opens on February 15th. Tell your friends, neighbors and colleagues! Tours are free and open to ALL, but they fill up fast!
