With a motto of "You'll be a fan for life!", Hillsborough has a lot to live up to. And it does, with a quaint but busy town center, regular community events such as art openings, and a lively, engaging atmosphere. Hillsborough is truly a small town, containing only 6,000 people within its approximately four square miles. The historical district of the downtown is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and highlights hundreds of houses, churches, hotels, and other architectural structures that originated in the 1700s and 1800s and have been beautifully preserved.
The homes of Hillsborough, North Carolina, offer old-fashioned southern elegance without the expense. Houses with four and five bedrooms and gracefully sloping rooftops meet newly built town homes to create the diverse neighborhoods of Hillsborough. With a small population and plenty of space to spread out between houses and yards, Hillsborough is very appealing to small and larger households alike. Thankfully, this east coast Orange County town doesn't come with the sticker price that you might think.SHOW MORE
