Mike was very helpful and gave us a map of the downtown Hillsborough area. I really enjoyed the garden spot and the welcome pig on the front porch was so cute!

Visited the center to see what was happening while on the area. We were taken back in time as we sat in the bench on the front porch and looked at all the town had to offer. There is quite a bit of history throughout the entire town. The center had flyers available as well as the website on different... More

We are indeed fortunate to have this wonderful building relocated to this site which we now call the Visitor's Center. The staff are superior, and are truly dedicated to the preservation and success of our wonderful town. Do stop in and become steeped in the history. The architecture is splendid and you will so appreciate the wide plank floors, and... More

The Hillsborough Visitor's Center should be the centerpiece of your tour of the Hillsborough Historic District. The center is on the corner of King St and Cameron St, 1 block off Churton St and is headquartered in a historic 19th century farmhouse that was moved to the site many years ago. The building was where General Johnson surrendered a large... More

All the sites in Hillsborough are worth visiting. I have NEVER seen SO many Historical Markers in one town. Go to the Visitor's Center on West King Street to get a FREE map. Jane H.

The staff were helpful and were able to tailor advice to whatever your interests are. Maps offered were accurate, but not coordinated...in other words each site was numbered with a different system, but still they did help.

I just love the town of Hillsborough. It is steeped in history with a significant amount of historical buildings including this one that serves as a Visitors Center. The staff is extremely helpful and there are lots of brochures about the area. We did not view the video which I think would have added to the significance of the building... More
