     History
    Gypsum made Hillsborough Village rich back in the good old days. The place was one of the most prosperous of the area when boats would come up the Bay of Fundy and take the Gypsum away. Then one day, Gypsum wasn't that hot a commodity anymore and the numerous quarries, the mill, the silos and everything else related to gypsum slowly closed down.

     Future Plans
    Wait till the silos falls into the river.
