Operating as usual


This coming Saturday, 15 September, from 10 AM - Noon,

the Hillsborough Historical Society will host a workshop featuring Dick Baldwin. Mr Baldwin will teach us how to clean headstones. As most of you know, Dick is a lifelong resident of Hillsborough and has been a key figure in promoting the maintenance, restoration, and cataloguing of Hillsborough's many graveyards, large and small. He was trained by the NH Old Graveyard Association
We will meet at Pine Hill Cemetery, which is on Atwood Rd, off of 31 North, just past the President Franklin Pierce Homestead, the first left after. All materials are supplied. Bring a bag lunch, the HHS will supply beverages.
Stay for part or all of the workshop. Mr Baldwin is a wealth of information on Hillsborough's cemeteries, even those small, out of the way ones.
Are you curious about the proper way to clean & preserve a headstone or perhaps you've priced out the services of a headstone cleaning for a family burial plot? Or you may be simply concerned regarding the conditions of a local burial site, this workshop will be a wonderful source of information & practical skills.

All are welcome!

I made this model of Hillsborough as it was in 1768, focusing on the mills and waterworks on the Eno River. In order to show the races and watergates of the three mills, This section is our of proportion. The gates enabled the water to be shut off to one or two of the mills during low water periods. Gen. Francis Nash was was killed at Germantown in 1777 owned the mills at this time. My very distant cousin Reason Ricketts was one of the Regulators who was hanged on November 21, 1779 in Hillsborough. He was born in All Hallows Parish, Ann Arundell Co. Maryland as was my ancestor William Ricketts who came to Pittsylvania in 1780.
Chris will join us again at LHE

My mother was born in Hillsborough and my great-grandparents lived there and are buried there. If I sent you a picture of their house, could you tell where it was located? Thanks.
