Also included are these nine Hillsborough curiosities. Taken off the map here, can you figure out where any of these places were located?
|Everyone should know where the Union House Tavern stood - although we do not commonly refer to it by that name.|
|There were many water-powered grist mills and saw mills in Hillsborough in the mid 19th century. Apparently we also had a steam powered mill!|
|A lot of shoes during this period were still made one pair at a time in a cobbler's shop. Apparently, cutting-edge Hillsborough had an entire factory churning out footwear.|
|In 1850, being driven to the poorhouse wasn't just an expression, it was a destination! Do you know where Hillsborough's "Poor Farm" was located?|
|One of these two locations was in the news recently.|
|You had to be pretty important to not only have your name on the map as a current property owner, but to also have your FORMER residence noted. Peter Vroom was governor of New Jersey, and the Labagh residence is still singled out - take a look at the 206 bypass plan!|
|Mid-19th century Hillsborough had three "earthenware manufactories", all in the same general location.|
