Hillsboro lies in the Hillsboro Gap of the Short Hill Mountain, which is part of the Blue Ridge Mountains in northwestern Virginia. The town is about 55 miles northwest of downtown Washington, D.C. and 10 miles southeast of Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. In Hillsboro, where the most contemporary structure dates to the late 1800s, some 100 residents call this tiny town home. Renovations and additions to the vintage homes reflect careful thought by the homeowners and skilled craftsmen to make the new look old in this little town that was once known as the "Gap in the Short Hill."
A central feature of the town is its affectionately named "Old Stone School." Originally named Locust Grove Academy, the oldest part of the building, the east wing, was built in 1874. There are numerous community events, fairs and performances year round at the Old Stone School. Come visit Hillsboro and explore the quaint atmosphere of this small town!
