Mission Statement

The Hillsboro Historical Society’s mission is to preserve, collect, and protect the history of Hillsboro, Kingston and the surrounding area, through the preservation of artifacts, documents, and photographs relating to their history. The HHS encourages the conservation of these resources through the researching, drafting and publication of historic or new articles, journals, books or newsletters, and the development and production of audio and/or video recordings that document life in the mining district of the Hillsboro area, and exhibits and special events at the HHS Education Center. The goal of HHS is to bring people together who are interested in the history of Hillsboro.



Hillsboro Historical Society is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization qualified under Section 501(c) 3 of the Internal Revenue Code. All donations are tax deductible.
