Pittsboro was established in 1785. I love Pittsboro. I visit the farmer’s markets. I do the farm tour of the sustainable agriculture. I shop at the businesses in historic downtown Pittsboro. I am not a photographer but I do play with HDR photos. I thought it would be neat to create a resource of Pittsboro in HDR and photograph some of the landmarks and businesses here. So here it is, Pittsboro NC in HDR in 2014 (and 2015).
Note: This post is a work in progress. Pittsboro is going to change drastically over the decades to come, from being a tiny town to one of the largest technology hubs in the USA. I paused work on this post in August 2014. Finally, in February 2015, I am publishing it the way it sits. I will update this post as time allows. If you have input on things I should add please feel free to email me or comment below.
Also, this is just one person’s view of Pittsboro. The filters and HDR software I use alters original images, but then again every camera does.

Above: The Chatham County Courthouse. When people think of Pittsboro, one of the first things that pops into mind is the historic courthouse. The court house was built in 1881. It caught fire March 25, 2010. I happened to be in town this day and watched as it burned. 11 Fire Departments responded to the blaze. The clock tower and upper floors were destroyed but the courthouse was rebuilt. In 2013 it reopened as a museum.
Above: The Chatham County Justice Center. The Justice Center opened in December 2012. It is a whopping 90,000sf building . If you ask me it is this huge to serve the future needs of Chatham County as Chatham Park takes shape and drastically increases the size of Pittsboro. The Justice Center is located at 200 Sanford Road.
Above: The Pittsboro Post Office is located at 916 East St.
