Hillsboro is a city in Jefferson County, Missouri, United States. The population was 2,821 at the 2010 census. Hillsboro is the county seat of Jefferson County.
Hillsboro was originally called Monticello, and under the latter name was platted in 1839, and named after Monticello, home of President Thomas Jefferson. The name Monticello was afterwards changed because the U.S. postal authorities refused to accept that name, there being another post office in the state with a similar name. The present name Hillsboro is the English equivalent of the Italian name Monticello. A post office has been in operation at Hillsboro since 1838.
The Thomas C. Fletcher House and Sandy Creek Covered Bridge are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Doe Run Company, a subsidiary of the Renco Group has operated a lead smelter near they city since 1892. In 2001, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources found that street dust in the town of Herculaneum contained 30% lead. Testing the same year by the United States Environmental Protection Agency found high levels of air pollution. Test results also showed elevated levels of lead among more than half of pre-school age children who were tested living near the smelter in Herculaneum.
The Doe Run Company, which was a major component of Hillsboro's local economy, undertook a voluntary buyout of homes in the area and over the next few years purchased approximately 160 homes. In addition to the buyout, Doe Run invested $14 million in the removal of lead-contaminated soil.
