Welcome

Hillsdale Toll GateTown History Like You’ve Never Seen or Heard It Before

The story of our community’s past is all around us: mysterious cemeteries, landmarks with Dutch-sounding names, a giant Civil War monument, stone walls that run for miles through forests, an abandoned toll gate, an old railroad line that’s getting a new lease on life, twentieth-century roads that cut through the backyards of nineteenth-century farms. Peter Cipkowski will be telling the story of Hillsdale’s history at the Roe Jan Library on Sunday, November 9 More here.
