Homes & Condos for Sale in Hillsboro Beach
Hillsboro Beach is situated on a small peninsula just north of Pompano Beach in Broward County. It extends from the Hillsboro Inlet on the south to Deerfield Beach on the north. It is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on the east and the Intracoastal Waterway on the west. Its greatest width is about 900 feet. It has but one road, State Highway A1A. The Hillsboro Lighthouse, completed in 1907, towers 136 feet above the northern end of the Florida Reef. It contains a 5,500,000 candle power light. This makes it the most powerful light on the east coast of the United States.
The name Hillsboro Beach is derived from the Earl of Hillsborough, who received large grants of land from the English Crown during one of the periods of English possession of Florida that alternated with Spanish ownership. Florida became part of the United States by purchase from Spain in 1819. In 1922, Herbert L. Malcolm (later a Town Commissioner for ten years and Mayor for two terms) bought land next to the Inlet and built a school.
In 1925 he turned the school into a hotel, which became the present Hillsboro Club. The Town was originally incorporated in 1939 and remained inactive until 1947 when it was incorporated by a special act of the Florida Legislature. 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 still an unpaved, sandy road. A narrow bridge, operated by hand, connected Hillsboro Beach to Pompano Beach.
