Welcome to Hillsboro, Kansas, gateway to Marion Reservoir Lake. Located on the edge of the picturesque Flint Hills, Hillsboro residents are in touch with nearly one million people in less than an hour’s drive; Wichita to the South, Salina to the North, Hutchinson to the West and Emporia to the East. Two state highways intersect at Hillsboro providing quick access to the Interstate system, Hwy 56 traveling East and West, and Hwy 15 heading North and South.
Hillsboro’s 3000 residents enjoy living in a progressive town in a rural agricultural setting. Hillsboro has an aggressive business climate with an active industrial park and is home to a number of manufacturers, including two trailer manufacturing firms, a feed mill and a honey packaging plant that is one of the nation’s leading producers of processed honey. Our strong educational system is enhanced by a recently-completed multi-million dollar athletic stadium by USD 410 and Tabor College and Tabor’s upcoming multi-million dollar Center for the Arts.
