Hillsboro has done an awesome deed by restoring their courthouse. Absolutely beautiful! They have a farmer's market on Saturdays during the summer.

Great courthouse. One of the prettiest I've ever seen. It has great architecture and character. Town has friendly people. There is a great restaurant right on the south east corner of the courthouse square named Frankie's. Great fun for a day trip

One of the most beautiful courthouses I've ever visited. It has the old bell from the original courthouse on display with a plaque that tells the history.
