Pittsboro, NC
A Community With a Proud Past and an Exciting Future

Message from Mayor Cindy Perry

As the Mayor of Pittsboro, I welcome you to our unique and friendly town.

We are delighted you are here, whether you spend a couple of hours, visit family, tour our warm and welcoming town, or make Pittsboro your home.  

Pittsboro is nestled in the gentle hills of Piedmont North Carolina.  We are proud of our agricultural, academic and artistic lifestyles.

Agriculturally, we have led the State with the Sustainable Agriculture Program and an Innovative Culinary Program on the Pittsboro campus of Central Carolina Community College, utilizing produce of small farms, including one on campus. The County is home to over 1100 farms, some of which sell at farmers markets and to local fine dining restaurants. The Chatham County Agriculture and Conference Center is under construction on the west side of Pittsboro, on the campus of the Community College.

The Jordan Lake and timbered buffer occupy nearly 20,000 acres through the eastern portion of our county, and provide recreation for our area as well as downstream flood control. The lake was created by the Army Corps of Engineers in the 1960-70’s from the Haw and New Hope Rivers, Parkers Creek and other tributaries. Jordan Lake offers camping, eagle habitat, an educational state park, fishing, and boating for local residents and visitors.

Academically, we are within a short distance of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, North Carolina Central University, Duke University, and North Carolina State University, as well as a cluster of private and community colleges. These universities and colleges serve not only as excellent academic centers, but also as research centers, medical centers, and employment centers within and nearby to our community.

Pittsboro is the home to diverse, small businesses, several fine restaurants, and artists’ workshops, murals and pocket parks. Please take the time to walk our friendly town, where you can step back in time to an old fashioned soda shop, the Woodwright’s school and tool shop, vintage clothing, and a variety of locally owned shops full of art, crafts and gifts. 

Growth is coming to our town, specifically with Chatham Park, an expansive work-live-play community which is to occupy over 8,000 acres to the east of our town, and west of the Haw River. The Town Staff and Town Board of Commissioners will be working to insure that this project will complement our existing community as we move forward together.

Please check our Facebook page, join us for arts and crafts on First Sundays March through December, and our annual October Street Fair.

Again, welcome to Pittsboro!
