About The Horace Williams House

Built in the 1850s and the only historic house open to the public in Chapel Hill, the Horace Williams House is an elegant setting for your event. The house's original interior has parquet ceilings, wooden floors, period lighting, a unique octagon room and numerous porches. It is complemented by wide open lawns and magnificent trees. The Horace Williams House, a local landmark, is a classic backdrop to your special event. Our location on Franklin Street is within walking distance of downtown Chapel Hill and the University campus. Parties for more than 80 attendees are usually held outside on one of the lawns. Tents work well on our beautiful front yard and allow easy access to the house. We can help with planning and finding you the best vendors and caterers. Call us today for an appointment to tour the Horace Williams House or to schedule your next event
