Samuel Hill, usually known as Sam Hill, was a businessman, lawyer, railroad executive and advocate of good roads in the Pacific Northwest. He substantially influenced the region's economic development in the early 20th century. His projects include the Peace Arch, a monument to 100 years of peace between the United States and Canada, on the border between Blaine, Washington and Surrey, British Columbia; the Maryhill Museum of Art, a building originally conceived as a residence; and Maryhill Stonehenge, a replica of Stonehenge in Maryhill, Washington, a memorial to fallen World War I soldiers from Klickitat County, Washington.
