Hillsdale platted 1872. Railroads were instrumental in town's development. Businesses located near depot at base of hill; residential areas were built on side and top of hill. Concrete steps were constructed 1903 by John H. Self to facilitate access to town areas. These "stone" steps provide a scenic connection with the community's past.
