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:

    1. Does anyone remember the story about a missing young woman named Kathy Ennis in Hillsborough? We were both single parents and traded babysitting for each other on occasional weekends. Her son was 7 and mine was 6. Both were named Andy. One day she went missing. I knew she would never leave her son alone. This was in 1987 or 1988. A year later I moved out of town and she was not found by then. What ever happened to her? Does anyone know?

    2. Yes, her body was found a few years later. Her son is now a police officer. He grew up to be a fine young man. Andy went to elementary school with my son and I went to Githens with Kathy. The last time I saw her was in a drug store in Chapel Hill. Our sons at that time were about 2.
