Hillsboro Beach Personal Injury & Accident Attorneys
Hillsboro Beach is a town in Broward County, Florida, United States. The tract of land on which the Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse stands was named forand was once part of large land grant awarded by the English Crown to Wills Hills, the Earl of Hillsborough. The Earl served as Britain’s Secretary of State for the Colonies in the late 1700’sand received large grants of land from the King of England while Florida was an English possession. Hillsboro Beach, Inlet, and Lighthouse all still carry the Earl’s name, though the spelling has been shortened a bit. Perhaps fittingly, an air of aristocracy can still be felt and seen in the area as one drives along Millionaire’s Mile and catches a glance of the exclusive Hillsboro Club, both located just north of the lighthouse. Hillsboro Beach is part of the Miami–Fort Lauderdale–Pompano Beach Metropolitan Statistical Area.
