Hillsboro was a small town in North Bethlehem Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania in the early 1800s. The land was first surveyed on February 23, 1785 by Isaac Bush and originally known as Springtown. The land was later sold to George Hill who conveyed it to his son, Stephen Hill. The Hill family is recognized for building Hill's Tavern (now known as Century Inn), between 1788 and 1794. The town was renamed Hilsboro (date unknown), up until April 10, 1867, when is was renamed Scenery Hill.
