Hill's Fort Society is a federal non-profit historic corporation. The
American Farm Heritage Museum near Greenville, Illinois (map) has
offered land on their site for the reconstruction of Hill's Fort.
A cabin was the first building constructed, and the
such as it would have looked around the time of the War of 1812 is
nearly complete. A smaller cabin and palisade walls are next (view our progress).
