Pittsboro, Chatham County’s seat of government, is home to just 4,000 people. Visiting its bustling downtown, which is filled with vibrant local businesses and unique shops in historic buildings, is like taking a step back in time. Just a few miles west of Pittsboro is Siler City, another small yet thriving community that’s known for its picturesque downtown, one-of-a-kind restaurants and shops, and Southern hospitality. Country roads, forests, and fields dominate the rest of the area.
Jordan Lake is one of Chatham County’s main attractions and the Triangle’s favorite destination for fishing, hiking, swimming, and camping. This 14,000-acre reservoir is popular year-round and features scenic picnic spots, over 1,000 campsites, miles and miles of shoreline, and even a bald eagle observation platform. Whether you’re craving the excitement of water sports like tubing or a laid-back stroll through nature, you’re just a few minutes from your favorite lake activities when you live in Chatham County.
Home to Jordan Lake, Carolina Tiger Rescue, several breweries, and plenty of small towns, Chatham County is an alluring region in the Triangle. Because of its proximity to Research Triangle Park, Durham, Raleigh, and the North Carolina mountains, not to mention its beautiful scenery, Chatham County has become a popular place to live away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to everything.
