Hillsboro, VA

Small Rural Town in the Blue Ridge Mountains

the community of Hillsboro VA in Loudon County VA
Visiting Hillsboro VA
Hillsboro VA (originally Hillsborough) is located near the Blue Ridge Mountains in the northwestern part of Virginia and 10 miles south of historic Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. This small town had no street addresses for buildings until 2000; up to then buildings were only referred to by their owner's names or purposes.

Although quite small and quaint, this Loudon County community can boast about their porches! We had a fun hour or so taking pictures and strolling with our family along Charles Town Pike. We hope these photos give you some ideas for your own porch and joy in seeing a very small town in America.


Please Enjoy These Hillsboro VA Porches

sawn balusters on upper and lower front porch
Sawn balusters on both upper and lower front porches
Sawn balusters, like those shown above, are typically seen on Victorian homes and often custom made in beautiful designs. Take a look at the many pictures of sawn balusters we have here.



half round porch columns on front porch
Half round porch columns
Take special note of the decorative half round columns. Although not installed as supporting columns, they add sophistication to this porch.

We appreciate how they are painted to match the sawn balusters. Such cohesive appeal.

Charming front porch with gable roof
We found this adorable porch, complete with exterior house trim on the gable, quite charming!

Imagine spending a little on this traditional chink log porch. Chinking is the material between the logs and can range from mortar to other fill materials.


haint blue porch ceiling on two story home
Traditional haint blue porch ceiling
You will find many porch ceilings in the South that are painted haint blue. Haints are evil spirits that cannot cross water and thus ceilings were painted blue to keep them from entering the home.

Porch columns with ornate brackets
Want an easy way to add charm to almost any porch? Brackets are your answer. Brackets add much charm and personality to this inviting porch and are straightforward to install.

Our sponsor, Vintage Woodworks, produces beautiful handcrafted brackets and other porch parts.


cottage garden landscaping in front of porch
Pretty cottage garden
This cottage style flower garden adds ribbons of color to the front yard landscaping. Filled with easy-to-care-for perennials, cottage gardens can be low maintenance and cost effective over the years.


stone walkway leading to front of porch
Traditional stone walkway
We enjoy finding creative walkway ideas on our travels. We especially enjoy the look of stone walkways, as they tend to add a sense of classic style and tradition.


yellow front door on eclectic front porch
An eclectic front porch with a welcoming yellow door
There's something about an eclectic style front porch that makes you stop and take it all in! We found this one to be quite interesting and love the color of the front door.


gable porch on stone home
Gable front porch addition on stone home
This small gable front porch addition softens the look of the stone facade and adds a measure of charm to this home. A gable roof also helps to protect family, friends, and visitors from the weather.


large stuffed teddy bear on porch
Friendly Teddy Bear guarding the porch
Who doesn't love a little whimsy on the porch? We spied this fellow relaxing (and keeping an eye on us).


patriotic star on porch
Get porch decor ideas!
We are always on the lookout for decorating ideas and thought we'd show these. The patriotic star is perfect for several of our patriotic holidays and like the floral arrangement on the front door.

We enjoyed our visit to Hillsboro VA and encourage you to stop by when you're in the area.
