A collaboration between the History Department, UNC, and the Chapel Hill Historic District Commission.
Historic Chapel Hill is a website for the public that curates Chapel Hill’s landscape through the use of geo-located historical text and archival images. Historic Chapel Hill allows you to explore the architecture, places, and people that have shaped the town’s history. As the site develops, archival film, oral history and other audio, and short documentary videos will be included. Our initial goal is to cover the historic districts in town. Our next goal is to cover historically Black neighborhoods. This project was made possible by a grant from the Kelly-Webb Trust.
