Town of Chapel Hill Facts
 
  • Founded in 1819 and chartered in 1851.
 
  • The name "Chapel Hill" is derived from the combination of New Hope Chapel (built in 1752) and the hill it stood upon.  The location was near modern day Carolina Inn along Pittsboro Road (now Columbia Street).  The chapel was often referred to as the "chapel on the hill".  Over time, it was shortened to Chapel Hill.
 
  • The Town of Chapel Hill is approximately 21.1 square miles.
 
  • It is governed by a council/manager style government.
 
  • 2004 census shows a population of 52,440 residents, which does not factor in the population of UNC that doubles the population during most of the year.
