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!

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
