After receiving an outpouring of e-mails, letters, phone calls, and comments asking me to continue Chapel Hill Memories in some form, Chapel Hill Memories is back in a subscription format.
For $30 a year you will have access to all our new and existing content. You may also buy a lifetime subscription for $100. With a subscription, your login id will be activated to access the Chapel Hill Memories website.
We decided to go the subscription route for two main reasons:
1) Our articles and photos have routinely been copied and used on other websites and Facebook without our authorization or credit.
2) The costs in time and money for creating this website are substantial. Unlike many blogs Chapel Hill Memories was custom developed from scratch and required several hundred hours of programming. I have also invested a lot in acquisition of materials and other items to include in articles. We have done all of this to provide the best experience possible to those interested in preserving and reliving memories of Chapel Hill.
Upcoming articles include: A profile of Maurice Julian and Julian’s Clothing Store; Behind the scenes at the Ranch House restaurant; The secret story of a NASA Space Capsule crash landing outside of Chapel Hill in 1961 with lots of photos of the capsule and crash site; The early years of the Cat’s Cradle; The man Chapel Hillians said they would always remembe and then forgot; The history of the UNC-Duke rivalry; The day dogs were no longer allowed to run free in Chapel Hill; Chapel Hill businesses from the 1970s nobody remembers; and The history of pizza in Chapel Hill.

What is it that binds us to this place as to no other? It is not the well or the bell or the stone walls. or the crisp October nights. No, our love for this place is based upon the fact that it is as it was meant to be, The University of the People.
