Based on 5 reviews

The home was built in 1854 by UNC Professor Benjamin Hedrick and was also home to Professor Hildred Hosea Smith, President George Winston, and Professor Henry Horace Williams. It was built in the Greek Revival style by John Berry, a famous local builder, and a labor force of free and enslaved African Americans. It features an unusual Octagon Room, and later additions are in the Victorian style. The building is now the offices of Preservation Chapel Hill, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving historic structures and places in Chapel Hill. Various Chapel Hill/Carrboro- themed guided walking tours for $5 per person organized through the Horace Williams House. Check website for dates and times.
