History

The city of Hillsdale was established in 1839 and was designated the county seat of Hillsdale County in 1843. Since the 1840s, the section of the city covered by this district has been the commercial and civic heat of Hillsdale.

Description

The Hillsdale Downtown Historic District contains 95 buildings constructed from the 1860s to the 1930s. These include structures associated with many of the city's oldest civic and commercial institutions, and structures that represent many of the broad trends in American and Midwestern architecture extant during Hillsdale's history.

Significant buildings in the district include the Hillsdale County Courthouse, the Hillsdale City Hall, post office, St. Anthony Catholic Church, St. Peter's Episcopal Church, First United Methodist Church, First Presbyterian Church, and the former rail depot.
