Pittsboro/North Chatham County

Pittsboro Real Estate Community Information

Pittsboro was first incorporated as a municipal entity in 1787. The Town was named for William Pitt the Younger, the county being named for his father, the Earl of Chatham. The Town has a long, rich history and heritage which has been preserved successfully over the years. As the town has grown and changed, the goal of maintaining this character has been one of the guiding principles. Judging by the current condition of the downtown and historic district, the past and present town leaders have been successful in this endeavor.

Although the Town has such an illustrious past, it is its current charm and bright future that generates the enthusiasm and optimism that is pervasive throughout the community. The Town has all of the appealing qualities of small town North Carolina; such as, friendly, caring people; a low crime rate; relatively low cost of living and a slower, gentler pace of life. These qualities coupled with its close proximity to the employment centers, cultural activities and retail conveniences of the adjacent cities of the triangle make it a particularly appealing place to call home.

Downtown Pittsboro

Pittsboro's downtown area with its mix of quaint antique shops, neighborhood eateries, small offices, small scale retail establishments, historic churches and buildings make it a lively, walkable destination that draws visitors from the entire southeast region.

Pittsboro Galloways

The cows and barn silo greet visitors entering the Fearrington Village Center.  The black and white "Oreo" cows are belted Galloways, a rare breed of Scottish beef cattle.  Their role at Fearrington is strictly to make people smile.
