This community is rich with history and plays a large roll in Chatham County’s development. Bynum is located about 5 miles north of Pittsboro, right on the Haw River.

In past years, we have gone to Bynum for Halloween and it has been a great time for everyone in our family. Our children have large age gaps, currently they are 25, 18, and 13 and finding things that suited all of us could be tricky at times but this really was fun for all of us. I would recommend this to any friend!
