Hillsboro is a city in Oregon State. Located in Washington County and part of the Portland metropolitan area, Hillsboro has a population of 91,611. Various high-technology businesses make up what is called in the area as the Silicon Forest.

The Tualatin Valley was initially occupied by the Atfalati tribe of the Kalapuya for thousands of years. The European-American settlers liked the area since it boasted a moderate weather condition, plentiful hunting, agricultural and fishing opportunities. A village was established by the year 1842. It was named in honor of David Hill, an Oregon politician.

An interurban electric railway was constructed in the early part of the 1900s.
