Hillsboro is the largest city in Washington County with a growing population of almost 100,000. It is also one of the oldest communities in the Oregon, established in the mid-1800s by early pioneers that started the area’s farming and timber industries. The advent of the railroad caused Hillsboro to become a major agricultural supplier for surrounding communities.
