Requiring one-acre lots, expansive Hillsborough Township ensures room to stretch and grow. Characterized by acres of rich farmland and rolling hills, the countryside features primarily newer construction. Several small villages throughout the township offer a charming small-town atmosphere and quiet neighborhoods, including Neshanic, South Branch, Flagtown, Belle Mead, and Blackwell's Mills. Industrial zones offer excellent opportunities for business, and Duke Gardens is a regional attraction. New Jersey Monthly magazine ranked Hillsborough the 31st best place to live in its 2010 rankings of the "Best Places to Live" in New Jersey.
