Established in 1785, Pittsboro, the county seat of Chatham County, is a charming small town of about 4,000. It is populated by a diverse group of artists, farmers, shopkeepers, students and retirees, born here or drawn here by its unique quality of life. Perfectly centered in North Carolina, it lies 150 miles from both Wilmington at the coast and Boone in the mountains, and within 35 miles of Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill. The historic downtown area is anchored by the beautifully restored Chatham County Courthouse which houses the Historical Society Museum. The Courthouse sits on land at the intersection of two State highways and is surrounded by a traffic circle, earning Pittsboro the nickname "Circle City". Strolling through the downtown, visitors will discover a variety of unique small businesses. Area coffee shops, restaurants, and a bakery provide a variety of choices from farm-to-table to diner style. On the First Sunday of the month, March through December, the Pittsboro Business Association hosts a Downtown street fair with live music, craft, and food vendors. Within a 20 minute drive are several wineries, golf courses, Jordan Lake State Recreation Area, the award winning Fearrington Inn and Restaurant, and the Carolina Tiger Rescue.
