Abstract:
Built by William Kirkland in 1814-1816, Ayr Mount in Hillsborough, is one of North Carolina's finest Federal- style houses. The house and estate comprise about 265 acres, around half of the original holdings. Richard Jenrette purchased it in 1985 and restored many of the original furnishings which had left the house over time. Ayr Mount is operated by Preservation/ North Carolina.
