Many of the homes and buildings in Hillsboro date to the late 1800's. The Black Range Museum, the Hillsboro Union Church, the Hillsboro Community Center, the Hillsboro Courthouse ruins, and the Hillsboro Post Office all date back to our mining-town beginnings.
Hillsboro welcomes visitors with several annual events. Christmas in the Foothills happens in December and features local art, food, and fun. Concerts are held at the Hillsboro Commuity Center several times a year, and the Zia Velo annual bicycle race brings cyclists to Hillsboro each March!
Hillsboro has several art galleries featuring work from the southwestern US and Mexico. Cuna Cueva specializes in Mata Ortiz pots and ceramic ware, Huichol yarn paintings, Mexican ironwood sculptures, and custom jewelry featuring Yogo sapphires.
Hillsboro and the surrounding area has many scenic camping and hiking locations including the Gila National Forest, the Black Range, and Emory Pass. Wildlife abounds, with bear, cougar, bobcat, coyote, fox, deer, elk, javelina, ringtail cat, raccoon, wild turkey, Mexican Spotted Owl and Peregrine Falcon all inhabiting the area.
HILLSBORO GENERAL STORE CAFE
The General Store Cafe is filled with memorabilia original to Hillsboro. Cards and books by area residents are available. There’s a small selection of soft drinks and candy, and of course there’s always pie to go!
Wine Tasting. Taproom. Living Room. Kitchen. We wear many hats in this small community, and our cowboy-spun hospitality is on display at this downtown watering hole. Besides our own wine labels, we offer other New Mexico favorites, including craft beers and the wares of local artists. We make a great coffee, and we always have something good to eat. Come sit outside with us and sip some wine!
