  • Great historic home. The home has many features that were ahead of it’s time. The home had a central heating system, electric lights with gas back up and a beautiful pipe organ.

The Hill House reflects the upper end social standing of the time, and is also a very interesting look at some innovative building construction elements of the time period. Take the tour, then explore more on your own.
