Ayr Mount Tours; Thursday, July 20 – Saturday, July 22
Located in Hillsborough, North Carolina, Ayr Mount strikes a startling figure in the historical town. The 1815 federal, masonry edifice was the first of its kind in this once bustling trade town, and thanks to the preservation efforts of our founder Richard Jenrette, remains well preserved with several original family objects on display.
CAHPT invites you to explore the site to learn about the design, construction, and maintenance of the estate as well as the very lives of those, enslaved and free, who crafted, lived, and occupied the extravagant home and landscape from 1820 to 2018.
The grounds of Ayr Mount are open 7:00am to 7:00pm daily. Visitors are welcome to tour the home select Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays April through October. Guided tours will be offered Thursday & Friday at 1:00pm and 2:30pm. Tour times for Saturday take place at 11:00am, 1:00pm, and 2:30pm. All guests must purchase tickets in advance.
