The Benjamin Hedrick-Horace Williams House in Chapel Hill is in its final restoration phase. The Chapel Hill Preservation Society named it in honor of its two most controversial owners. The University of North Carolina dismissed Professor Benjamin Hedrick for his abolitionist views in 1856. He was the only person ever fired from the university for his political beliefs. Professor Horace Williams, who committed so many heresies that nearly every preacher in the state attacked him, once declared that Hitler would win World War II.
