The 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 blockhouse 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). The Hill's Fort Society mission is to collect, preserve, and share an important part of our nations' history. As a federal non-profit historic corporation, we focus on the history of Bond County and Early Illinois, as well as the Forts of Illinois. Read more about the history of Hill's Fort here.Collect:
