Welcome to the Short Hill Historical Society!

We are a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and restoring historic landmarks in the Short Hill region of western Loudoun County, Virginia.

This non-profit saved the Old Stone School in Hillsboro from being demolished and kept its doors open for 40 years through dues, donations, rental fees, and fundraising efforts all led by volunteers. Our efforts are now turning to preserve and restore other landmarks in our area. Read more about our history.
