New Hill, NC

New Hill is an incorporated town that sits at the boundary of where Wake and Chatham counties meet. It is a robust, small town, with a predictable North Carolina history that relates to agriculture and the railroad.  

A vast architectural  style including  Colonial, Tudor, Greek Revival, Bungalow, Queen Anne — two Gothic Revival churches comprise the portfolio of structures present in the community. Turn of the century farmhouses, with intact  out-buldings, offer pick your own strawberries, blueberries and pumpkins from the fields, seasonally based.

New Hill borders the Jordan Lake State Recreation area with 14,000 acres of water, campgrounds, boating, trails and fishing. The largest   population of bald eagles in the United States exists at Jordan Lake, a natural habitat supporting the continued progeny of our treasured National emblem.

Visit the North Carolina Railroad Museum in New Hill where you can purchase tickets to operate a steam or diesel locomotive. Humorously termed as “Operate a Loco.” Aspiring 'engineers' of all ages may visit the Railroad Museum to particpate in this adventure.

New Hill is a small town with deep roots that you will not want to overlook, whether to visit or live, it's worth the ride.
