General information and History on Hillsboro Beach Florida

The town was named for the Earl of Hillsborough, who received large grants of land from the King of England while Florida was an English possession. The 3.2-mile strip along State Road A1A includes an exclusive stretch called "Hillsboro Mile" or "Millionaires Mile".

The Town of Hillsboro Beach was originally incorporated in 1939 and remained inactive until 1947 when it was incorporated by a special act of the Florida Legislature. The first meeting towards formal incorporation was arranged by Mrs. Marie McCollum and took place in February 1947, at the residence of Mrs. Ruth Markland. At a meeting held on March 4, 1947, Ernest Wooler was elected the first Mayor of Hillsboro Beach. At that time the Town had 17 voters, 9 private houses, 4 groups of rental cottages and apartments, and the Hillsboro Club. Highway A1A was an unpaved, sandy road. A narrow bridge, operated by hand connected the Town with Pompano Beach.

Ironically, it was in Hillsboro Beach, Florida on October 9, 1887 that James 'Ed' Hamilton, one of Florida's legendary Barefoot Mailmen either drowned or was eaten by alligators while trying to swim across the Hillsboro Inlet. The inlet is now home to the famous Hillsboro Beach Lighthouse (1907) and the alligators have long been replaced by some of the most beautiful homes and beachfront property along South Florida's 'Gold Coast'.

It is located in northeastern Broward County, along the Atlantic Ocean. Sandwiched between West Palm Beach; Deerfield Beach and Pompano Beach to the north, Fort Lauderdale to the south, 3.2 mile-long Hillsboro Beach has no congestion and almost every one of its 2,000 residents lives within a short walk of the ocean. Only 900 feet at its widest point, the only way in or out of the island is along its major road, State Road A1A (known locally as the 'Hillsboro Mile').

The Town of Hillsboro Beach is governed by five elected Commissioners. The Town has a Police Department comprised of 16 men. The Town of Hillsboro Beach is serviced for fire by the Deerfield Beach Fire Department.
