Search Hillsboro West Virginia

Hillsboro can be found it Pocahontas County (Eastern Region).


As with many frontier towns, Hillsboro was established by a man who was running from his past. In 1765 John McNeil fled into the wilderness believing he had killed a man in a boxing match. Two brothers, Charles and Jacob Kinnison, found him during an expedition and gave McNeil the news of his opponent's recovery. McNeil would not be swayed to return with them, but he persuaded the Kinnisons to stay and help build a new settlement.
From Huttonsville to the north, Scenic Hwy 55 runs 86 miles to Lewisburg, traversing Hillsboro near Watoga State Park.
