Hidden Hillsborough at The Regulator

The Regulator welcomes photographer Elizabeth Matheson and writer Callie Connor, contributors to Hidden Hillsborough: Historic Dependencies and Landscapes in a Small Southern Town for a reading and book signing.

Hidden Hillsborough was inspired by mysterious elements around town: a structure in someone's backyard, stone steps that don't seem to lead anywhere, berms along certain Hillsborough streets that serve no apparent purpose, and other unusual features. Hidden Hillsborough reveals the purpose of the features mentioned above, as well as many others, telling their story and the story of Hillsborough. Photographed and documented are such topics as the town's street system, remnants of early sidewalks, gardens, well houses, spring houses, outdoor kitchens, barns, icehouses, offices, necessaries, slave houses, and educational institutions.

A native of Hillsborough, North Carolina, Elizabeth Matheson is a noted photographer whose work has been featured at the NC Museum of Art, Duke, the National Humanities Center, and the Gregg Museum at NC State, and others. She was awarded the North Carolina Award for Excellence in the Arts, the state`s highest civilian honor.

 

Callie Connor has lived in Hillsborough for 22 years, and is Professor Emerita of Classics at UNC-Chapel Hill. She has published extensively in her field of Byzantine Studies. She has served on numerous boards, including the Preservation Fund of Hillsborough.
