There is a saying that "people make the world go round" and that is certainly the case for the people of Hill County, Texas.  

Growing up in towns like Abbott, Hillsboro, and Hubbard, and educated in local schools, Hill County natives have gone on to achieve national and international fame.  As a musician, politician, sportsman, or military hero, these people have made a difference in their worlds. 

Other natives have remained local, raising families, running local businesses, and participating in local government and civic organizations.  Each one of these has contributed to what makes Hill County a part of the Heart of Texas.
