Hillsboro is the Montgomery County seat and it shows.
But in addition to playing an important role in regional government, the town offers both residents and visitors a pleasing mix of shops, dining options, and nearby nature experiences.
From the picturesque courthouse, the Historical Harkey House, and the bronze statue of Abraham Lincoln commemorating his many visits to the city, history comes to life here. These historical features serve as the backdrop for the more modern downtown, which has seen a rebirth in recent years, with an influx of niche and locally owned shops into the area. The Bremer Wildlife Sanctuary offers a peaceful getaway that’s just a stone’s throw from the heart of the city.
