At the time of its construction, the Hay Barn was near the center of farming activity, but as more land was purchased and the farming moved elsewhere, the structure was no longer needed as a hay press. Following a fire in January 1915, the building remained abandoned. Doris Duke used the ruins as an outdoor sculpture gallery, placing individual marble statues of human figures in linear arrangements along the walls, which can still be seen today.

Hillsborough is home to Duke Gardens and Duke Farms, a 2,700 acre estate in the north-eastern quadrant of the town that was originally owned by tobacco and electric energy tycoon James "Buck" Duke and then passed down to daughter Doris Duke.  Duke Gardens is now a "preserved" natural area in Hillsborough Township.

The Hillsborough Township School District serves students in kindergarten through twelfth grade. Students from Millstone also attend the district's schools as part of a sending/receiving relationship.
