Pittsboro, North Carolina

 

 

Pittsboro is a quaint small town and the county seat of Chatham County. Pittsboro is ideal for people who like to live off the beaten path a bit, but still want access to nearby city amenities. Even though Pittsboro feels like a country town, it’s centralized location, just south of Chapel Hill and just West of Cary and Apex make it ideal for commuters looking to get out of the city. The current population of Pittsboro is just over 4000 people, however, with the coming development of Chatham Park, a new live/work/play community complete with solar farm and smart grid zoned for 22,000 residents, that small town feel is likely to get a bit bigger in the near future.
