The Minnesota Historical Society acquired the Hill Family Collection in March 2008 from the James J. Hill Reference Library, nearly 1600 cubic feet of papers, photographs, and objects. The collection is composed of the James J. Hill papers, the Louis W. Hill papers, the Mary T. Hill papers, the Maud Van Cortlandt Taylor Hill papers, and the Maud Hill Schroll papers.
