History:  

HILLS, a city in Martin Township, section 28, platted in November 1889 and incorporated November 15, 1904, was at first called Anderson, in honor of Goodman Anderson, a resident there, but was renamed March 1, 1890, for Frederick C. Hills, who then was president of the Sioux City and Northern Railway. The city was located at the intersection of the Illinois Central and the Sioux City and Northern railroads. The post office was established in 1890, when postmaster Jacob N. Jacobson and his partner moved their store from Bruce, Jacobson having served as a postmaster there. Southwest of the village is the historic Old Iron Post erected in 1870, which marks the point of meeting for Minnesota, South Dakota, and Iowa.
