What is Chatham County Like?
Chatham County covers 709 square miles, and has a population of just over 60,000 - which is just over the population of the neighboring city of Chapel Hill, which has about 50,000 occupants within city limits. The county seat is the small town of Pittsboro, which had just 2500 residents in 2000, but has quietly grown since.
Chatham County consists of gently rolling hills, mostly heavily wooded. There are several wineries, and lots of farmland. Jordan Lake covers much of the eastern side of the county, and is a very popular Raleigh recreation area.
