A new display at the Hillsborough Visitors Center (150 E.

The public is invited to a reception of the panels on Sunday, November 20, at 4:00 p.m. at the Visitors Center that will include refreshments and an opportunity to tour the 1850s Hughes Academy. Descendants of Samuel Hughes and the Scott family of Haw Fields are encouraged to attend. The Hughes Academy building, originally located five miles north of Hillsborough, was moved and restored in the 1990s.
