Civic Pride Burger Family

I saw this on the internet and didn't live that far away and I figured I would take a trip and see the Burger Family. After about an hour of walking around trying to find them, I had no luck. I went into the Hillsboro Library and was told they have been removed due to vandalism.

A sign at the site reads, "The Burger Family has been temporarily removed for repairs." They are a popular Hillsboro civic symbol, so they will return.

Mrs. Burger was away getting her hair fixed, with a promise of a return soon. The McDonald's across the street is gone, but the new tenant kept parts of the lower arches.

A&W Root Beer Family - Brother Switched?

In 1977 I came to Hillsboro. We visited the A&W Root Beer restaurant many times, and I passed it a lot, setting on the corner of the highway in Hillsboro. There was no teenager in that family. It was a little boy with blue bib overalls, white shirt, tennis shoes, baseball cap on his head. He was smiling and he had a little sister. Only Root Beer Family I saw was Mom, Dad, little sister and little brother. The teenager that is now in the family doesn't belong. It is just another part of history that has been changed. I remember. It was the little boy that the high school kids took away to who knows where. Why doesn't anyone know that it was a little boy in overalls and tennis shoes?

There was a modified version of Teen Burger named "Ice Cream Boy" who wore bib overalls. Maybe that was the statue that was stolen, and then replaced in 1996 with a standard Teen Burger.
