The Nash-Hooper House, Hillsborough, NC


The postcard above shows an image of the Nash-Hooper House in Hillsborough, NC. William Hooper, a Revolutionary War hero and signer of the Declaration of Independence, moved into the Nash house in 1782.

The caption on the back of the postcard alerted us that Inglis Fletcher featured the Nash-Hooper House in two of her novels.  These novels are from Fletcher’s fabulous historical fiction series, “The Carolina Series,” documents events and people in North Carolina’s early beginnings.  These novels have been reviewed on our sister blog, Read North Carolina Novels, and you can read the reviews here:
