The most famous establishment in Chapel Hill is The University of North Carolina. Influences of the university are seen throughout the town, even in the fire departments. Each fire station in Chapel Hill has a fire engine that is Carolina blue. These engines are also decorated with different UNC decals, including a firefighter Rameses , the mascot of the university. UNC is nationally known for its mens basketball team coached by Hall of Fame Coach Roy Williams. This team is currently the defending National Champion. A passion for collegiate sports has been a distinctive feature of the town’s culture, fueled by the rivalry among North Carolina’s four ACC teams: the North Carolina Tar Heels, the Duke Blue Devils, the NC State Wolfpack, and the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. The two largest sports venues in the town both house UNC teams. The Dean Smith Center is home to the men’s basketball team, while Kenan Memorial Stadium is home to football.
The Morehead Planetarium was the first planetarium built on a U.S. college campus. When it opened in 1949, it was one of six planetariums in the nation and has remained an important town landmark. During the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo programs, astronauts were trained there. One of the town’s hallmark features is the giant sundial, located in the rose gardens in front of the planetarium on Franklin Street.
