At-a-Glance

In 1839, William Davis Merry Howard, the son of a shipping magnate from Hillsboro, New Hampshire, came to California as a cabin boy. Convinced there were fortunes to be made here, Howard would eventually settle in Hillsborough and build a large estate much like the ones for which the city is known today.

Hillsborough was incorporated in 1910 — a “perfumed city,” as one newspaper reported — that, to this day, continues to attract some of the Bay Area’s most affluent families.

In a Few Words

Prestigious, excellent schools

Living Here

Since Hillsborough has no commercial zoning, there are no businesses located within the town limits. In fact, the only non-residential properties here are a park, a golf course and country club, four public and three private schools, and town and county government facilities.

Not to worry, however, because neighboring Belmont, Burlingame, San Mateo, Millbrae, and San Carlos provide every opportunity to meet your shopping, dining, and entertainment needs.

Good-to-Know

Zoning laws have been consistently and rigidly enforced to offer space and serenity to Hillsborough’s residents. In fact, since 1937, the minimum lot size has remained a half-acre, with a minimum frontage of 150 feet.

Why Hillsborough?

In addition to its peaceful atmosphere, beautiful setting, and proximity to the City and the rest of Silicon Valley, Hillsborough has been recognized on a county, state, national and international level for excellence in education, making it a first choice for many families living in the Bay Area.
