Tennessean William Hickman Hill settled in Austin in the 1850s. He and his family became cultural and civic leaders. A grandson, William Green Hill (1853-1903), and his wife Ella Ione (Sanders) had this house built in 1890, angling it to catch prevailing summer breezes. Mrs. Hill's father, the Rev. Bleuford B. Sanders, added two rooms for his own use after he retired from evangelism, about 1900. Few other changes have occurred. Descendants occupy and preserve the house.
