Hillsboro, the government seat of Washington County and a thriving center of the agriculture industry, is a fast-growing suburb located just 20 minutes west of downtown Portland. Surrounding communities include Forest Grove, Cornelius and Beaverton. Early pioneers recognized the area’s agricultural richness and, in the mid-1800s, established thriving farming and timber industries. Hillsboro then, with the arrival of the railroad, became the breadbasket of Portland, supplying the city with dairy, fruits, vegetables and wood products.
Fittingly named The Heart of the Silicon Forest, Hillsboro is home to many technologically based companies including Intel. The MAX Transit line runs in Hillsboro allowing an easy and safe commute to Beaverton and Downtown Portland. But despite its rapid growth, small town charm remains an integral part of the Hillsboro community. Residents actively participate in community events, high school sports teams, and numerous outdoor activities.
Newer residential communities feature a mix of upscale row houses, brownstones, live/work units and cottages and reflect the changing nature of the community. Downtown Hillsboro exhibits a variety of both modest and classic historic homes and is only a short walk away from shopping areas and government offices. The median sale price of homes in the Hillsboro area is $335,000.
Because picturesque scenery and agricultural richness provide the perfect combination for lush vineyards, wineries are a popular draw for locals and visitors. The summer months are filled with engaging activities and happenings. The annual Fourth of July Parade is the second-largest Independence Day parade in Oregon and Oregon’s largest air show, the Oregon International Airshow, is held at the Hillsboro airport. A weekly downtown event, The Hillsboro Tuesday Marketplace is where local growers, crafters, artists and eateries display and sell their goods. With everything from a vintage feeling downtown district, to dining, shopping, parks, libraries, excellent schools, and acres of land with farms/vineyards - Hillsboro is an exciting place to call home.
