Second and Washington Streets, Hillsboro


A photograph of downtown Hillsboro, Oregon taken looking north from the intersection of Second and Washington Streets circa 1880. In the foreground, three girls hold hands while standing on a wooden sidewalk. The Commercial Hotel, built around 1866, is on the left, with a gas streetlamp nearby. The Feed & Livery shop, which had an opera house above it, is on the right. A group of four boys and two men are standing in front of the Feed & Livery shop. A gas lamp stands just behind the group. This photograph was donated to the museum by Verne McKinney, a local businessman whose family had lived in the area since at least the early 1900s.
