An excavation of Occaneechi Indian Village, an eighteenth-century Indian settlement can be found in Hillsborough. It has become a rich source of information about how native Americans lived before the British colonized the area. The village has been reconstructed with a palisade or stockade fence, huts, cooking site and sweat lodge, just as it was in the general area during the late 17th century.
