NAME: Hillsboro
COUNTY: Washington
CLIMATE: Cold snowy wenters, mild summers
BEST TIME TO VISIT: Late Spring through Earily Fall
COMMENTS: Hillsboro was located aprox. between two and three miles northeast of Beallsville between Spring Valley Road and Needmore Road on PA 40, on the old National Road in West Bethleham township, Washington County in southwestern Pennsylvania.
REMAINS: House foundations,, Lutheran Church foundation, old abandoned Lutheran church cemetery where my seventh Grandparents, Gasper and Charity Ricket are buried.

The town was founded about the time of the Revolution and became a stop on the old National Highway, now East National Pike, PA HGWY 40.  It prospered until the invention of the Railroads.  When the PA road department took some of the sharp  corners out of it in the 1850s the town was bypassed and died.
