The Hill family built the whole of the village of Hillsborough, starting with the fort in 1650, a fine example of an artillery fort, but with pretty additions in the 18th century. Surrounded by parks, Hillsborough has lots to see in a small space. Start at the Courthouse in the middle of the Square and be shown the full range of possibilities.
