College Hill History
From its earliest stages of development, the College Hill Neighborhood perpetuated an image of exclusiveness that was further enhanced by the founding of the city's first golf course, in what is now College Hill Park. As the years followed, middle class housing developed on the eastern part of the neighborhood. Residents of College Hill included prominent families connected with the major industries of the city, including livestock, grain, milling, railroads, lumber, petroleum, aviation and financial institutions.
