May 21, 2009 — For 37 years, the Rogers Road community in Chapel Hill has been at the center of a public debate about the impact of the Orange County Landfill, which borders the neighborhood. A new exhibit in the North Carolina Collection Gallery of UNC’s Wilson Library tells a deeper story, uncovering more than two centuries of the community’s history.

The free, public exhibit, We’re All Family Here: Preserving Community Heritage in the Rogers Road Neighborhood of Chapel Hill, will be open June 12 through August 31 in the North Carolina Collection Gallery, on the main floor of Wilson Library. (more here)
