Town Tuesday: Old Courthouse

Posted on

Yep…another new post heading. I will be doing a series of shots from my town. Hillsborough is one of the oldest towns in North Carolina and was the Capitol for a short time. It’s a very interesting, eclectic place. All photos are my personal collection. © ~Vic

      And, THIS was not in my panel!

      I’d love to know when it was put up. The stone it is made of matches the sidewalk and those stone sidewalks are OLD. That being said, it can’t be any older than the sinking of the USS Maine (which triggered the Spanish-American War).
