James J. Hill and his presence in White Bear Township 1883 forward

Join Hill Farm Historical Society Board President, Paul Dickson, for an enlightening talk delving into the life and contributions of James J. Hill, a critical figure in Minnesota’s history. Together, we will explore Hill’s journey from his humble beginnings to becoming a titan of industry, focusing on key milestones such as his arrival in Minnesota, his many land purchases – including land in White Bear Township, the formative years preceding his railroad ventures, and his pivotal role in the transition of Hill Farm to the community we now know as North Oaks.
