The Chapel Hill Historical Society was founded in 1966 to research and document the history of Chapel Hill and its surrounding communities, to encourage and assist in the study of local history, and to provide public programs and publications related to the heritage and traditions of the community. Our rich and diverse past programs include a series about the mainline churches of Chapel Hill, an informative lecture about the geological formations in Orange County, and a presentation by local cooks and chefs about local and Southern cuisine. Our annual Town Treasures program recognizes citizens who have served the community with an awards ceremony and in an exhibition of distinctive portraits by local photographer Catharine Carter. The Chapel Hill Historical Society has moved, they are now located at the Chapel Hill Public Library. (photo: Coca-cola Building is now Carolina Coffee Shop- courtesy Chapel Hill Historical Society)
