Hillsboro, Missouri Heating and Cooling Services
Hillsboro was first created as a settlement in the late 1770s. It was settled because it offered a variety of resources such as timber, rich soil, and game. It also had a steady water source from Big Spring that still exists today. The land that would later become Hillsboro was donated by Samuel Merry and Hugh O’Neill. While it is not known who first discovered Hillsboro and the land around it, the Huskey family settled in Hillsboro in 1803. The descendants of the original family still live on the same piece of property and their farm, Huskey Farm, is one of the oldest farms in Missouri.
When Jefferson County was first formed on December 8, 1818, Herculaneum was given the first county seat. Heated debate surrounded its position over the years before Hillsboro officially became the county seat in 1839. To this day, Hillsboro remains the county of Jefferson County. Hillsboro’s first courthouse was built in 1840 before it was replaced by a new one in 1865 on a new site of land. After several additions and remodeling, the courthouse built in 1865 remains today and it is still in use. Hillsboro was originally going to be called Monticello, the name of Thomas Jefferson’s house, but the name had already been taken. The community then settled on the name Hillsboro because it was an English translation of Monticello. In 2018, Hillsboro had a population of 3,186 people. Two historic places in Hillsboro are the Thomas C. Fletcher house and Sandy Creek Covered Bridge. The Thomas C. Fletcher house was built in 1850 and the Sandy Creek Covered Bridge was built in 1872. and You can learn more about Hillsboro’s history here and here, where we found all of our information.
