The Ruffin-Roulhac House, built in Hillsborough in the early 19th-century, now serves as the town hall. Mayor Fred Cates initiated the project to restore the structure in 1971. Professional architects advised against it because the building was unsound and almost overgrown with vegetation. However, local craftsmen restored the building in ten months. Dodd lists the individuals who owned the house over the years and describes some of its special features.
