State of Oregon - Hillsboro, Washington County

Hillsboro, Washington County, PO and County seat, 18 miles west of Portland, is one of the towns of the beautiful and fertile Tualatin Plains, near the Tualatin River, which here affords a water-power of almost unlimited capacity. The town is on the line of the Oregon Central Railroad, and by this route is 21 miles from Portland. A stage line is also maintained, having a shorter route and accommodating places on the way not reached by rail. It contains a tine brick Court House, three churches, two schools. Masonic and Good Templars' Lodges, a large steam flouring mill, and other business establishments. The surrounding country is of the most lovely character, healthy and productive, and it is referred to as the garden spot of the noble valley of the Willamette. A town so situated has only continued prosperity in the future, when population and more frequent intercourse with the world shall awaken its energies to greater activity. One newspaper, the Washington Independent, is published weekly.
