Mjesto i ostaci historijske građevine – Šantića vila u Borcima kod Konjica je proglašano nacionalnim spomenikom Bosne i Hercegovine.

Poglavar Bosne i Hercegovine, barun Benko, je 1902. godine sagradio vilu na Borcima. Barun Benko je često boravio u toj vili, dolazeći sa društvom u lov na Prenj. Nakon osam godina, 1910. godine, je prodao vilu porodici Šantić. Poznati pjesnik Aleksa Šantić se nastanio u vili na Borcima 1913. godine, kada je bio protjeran iz Mostara od strane austrougarske vlasti zbog svojih rodoljubivih pjesama.

Kako je bio dobar prijatelj, a i u rodbinskoj vezi sa Šantićima, i književnik Svetozar Ćorović je jedno vrijeme boravio u vili na Borcima.

Poslije I svjetskog rata, Aleksa Šantić je prodao vilu Domu zdravlja u Mostaru (Higijenskom zavodu).

Za vrijeme II svjetskog rata, u vili na Borcima je jedno vrijeme bila partizanska bolnica. Neprijateljska vojska je tada zapalila vilu. Poslije II svjetskog rata, Ministarstvo šuma Bosne i Hercegovine je obnovilo vilu i pretvorilo je u šumsku kuću, koju su koristili za svoje potrebe.

Od 1931. godine, u Vili Šantića na Borcima, živio je akademski slikar Lazar Drljača, gdje je i umro 13. jula 1970. godine. Sahranjen je, po sopstvenoj želji, na proplanku kod vile Šantića.

Objekat Vila Šantića je u ratu 1992-1995. godine stradao usljed ratnih djelovanja, tako da su sada ostali samo dijelovi kamenih zidova.
