From the Vault


Back in 2010 and 2011, the board of the Museum created a series of videos about important people and places in 20th century Orange County history.

Each month, we will unlock a new video and upload it to our YouTube channel for you to watch.

This month's feature video:

Julian Carr and the Magical Occoneechee Farm

Julian Shakespeare Carr was an industrialist, farmer, philanthropist, and white supremacist. His impact on Orange County was significant. This video from the Hillsborough Historical Society's Stores and Stories series focuses on Occoneechee Farm, his property along the Eno River in Hillsborough, from 1891-1923.

 Learn about the unique farm that people traveled specifically to Hillsborough to see!
