This historic building is worth a visit just to see the inside of the house and walk around outside. There are regular exhibits of artwork, often by local and regional artists. I haven't been to an event there, but I have exhibited art and there is a caveat to be able to leave open space for events. It's a very... More

The egg hunt at the Horace Williams house is a lot of fun for little kids. It is free and there are lots of fun games for the kids to play once they finish hunting for eggs.

This beautiful house on Franklin St. brilliantly showcases Chapel Hill's historic background by providing a quaint and charming experience for its visitors. The house itself is a town landmark. I visited for just under an hour and I learned so much! Truly a must see for history buffs!!

A big rambling house that seems to have belonged to a well-to-do professor of philosophy. Good venue for weddings.

Home of the Chapel Hill Preservation Society. Used to be home of the annual Cupcake Festival. People would come from all over to experience it. Great venue for weddings and other events. A beautiful setting in a beautiful part of Chapel Hill.

I walk by the Horace Williams House nearly every day on my way to town. There are frequently wedding receptions on the front lawn and Chapel Hill holds its Fourth of July celebration there. I go every year. It's an interesting place to visit if you happen to be there for a wedding or the July 4th celebration, but hardly... More

First of all, may I suggest that you give your heart to God, and have your wedding in the Episcopal Chapel of the Cross not far up the same (Franklin) street. They have a nice social hall, and it's a lot more charming than this place. However, as to Horace Williams: This is a funky old house, made into an... More
