Events of Hill County

Hill County Courthouse Fire

You may have heard someone say "Back in my day, things were different," and they were right.  In many ways, things were different a decade ago, a generation ago, and a century ago. 

But when you really think about it, in other respects things never change.  People still went shopping on Saturdays, traveled to live entertainment venues, and raised money for the local library or for politicians whose views they supported.  The manner in which they accomplished these things may have been different than today, but no matter how much progress we have made, "the more things change, the more they remain the same."
