The Hill Farm Historical Society preserves James J. Hill's legacy of innovation on over five acres that includes the dairy, blacksmith shop, and the signature "red barn," which served as the granary. The buildings are on the Register of Historic Places and an annual festival raises funds to ensure they are properly maintained.
It was a sunny September day, perfect for families and friends to take in all the activity: live music, farm animals to feed, ponies to ride, blacksmith demonstrations, a market with produce and crafts, kid’s games and bouncy houses, plus a huge silent auction in the barn and exhibits depicting life on the Hill Farm. My grandchildren attended (Brooke is the first picture and James is the last picture) and proclaimed the afternoon was ‘GREAT!!!’
