Alfred T. Agate, Hiland Hill, Jr., 1836, watercolor, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Bequest of Mary Elizabeth Spencer, 1999.27.1
The Hill family were among the early settlers of the town of Catskill, which later became part of Greene County, New York. Hiland Hill Jr.’s great-uncle and grandfather built houses next door to one another on what later became known as Hill Street. We do not know much about Hiland, except that he owned a store in Catskill and may have been a cashier in the town’s bank.
