Description
Hillsborough comprises several villages that feature Early American architecture, some of which is pre-Revolutionary. Stone arch bridges, built 1830-60 by Scottish stonemasons, are made from locally excavated granite. The town also was the home of the 14th president of the United States, Franklin Pierce.
Fox State Forest, on Center Road 2 miles north, covers 1,445 wooded acres. Its 20 miles of hiking paths become cross-country ski trails in winter; snowshoeing and snowmobiling also are available. Information about local plants and wildlife is available at headquarters; phone (603) 464-3453.
