Samuel Hill Residence
Hill was born in New Jersey in 1800 and came to New Salem in 1829 where he started a store in partnership with John McNamar. Hill was a small slender man with an irascible temperament but usually gallant to the ladies. After the dissolution of his partnership in 1832, Hill expanded his investments by erecting a carding mill in the spring of 1835. That July, Hill married Parthena Nance from nearby Farmer's Point. By 1840 Hill had moved his family and store to nearby Petersburg.
