    The Hillview Free Library was established in 1899 when Jane Keyes Hamilton, a resident of New York City and a visitor to Diamond Point decided the community should have a library.

    In 1901, having outgrown the original building, a friend, architect J. Dickinson Hunter, designed the stunning stone arched structure, whose curved door opened into an oak lined great room.
