Named after the daughter of businessman Sam Hill, the little settlement of Maryhill now boasts just 38 permanent residents. Hill dreamed that his town would one day become a thriving Quaker settlement, a wish that never materialized. The railroad man and campaigner for good roads left his mark nevertheless.
Although many of his original town buildings burned, Hill’s mansion and the scale replica he built of Stonehenge as a war memorial still stand as a symbol of his hopes. The dusty intersection of Highways 14 and 97 may be remote, but it offers the wandering traveler some unique sights and some wonderful wines  to add to the mystique of this place.
