Birth: Nov. 30, 1886
Los Angeles County
California, USA
Death: Mar. 1, 1981
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Early Chatsworth pioneer. Daughter of James David and Rhonda Jane Hill. The Hills settled in the town of Chatsworth located in the northwest area of the San Fernando Valley in 1886 (Minnie would be born later that year) and purchased an extensive area of land. A small residence, known as the Homestead Acre, was constructed there and completed in 1913. It was on the Hill land where the old stagecoach trail which traversed from Los Angeles and San Francisco made its Chatsworth stop. Later Minnie married Alfred Palmer and lived in Hawthorne near the South Bay, then later in Montana. After Minnie's brother passed on, she inherited the Chatsworth parcel. Minnie lived on this territory even when she was widowed and continued an existence of pioneer spirit and had very little modern conveniences. Upon suffering a stroke in her late 80s, she spent her last years in a sanitarium, living until the age of 94. The Homestead Acre was designated an official Historic-Cultural Monument (#133) in 1974 by the City of Los Angeles and was also noted in the National Register of Historic Places five years later. The diminutive bungalow, also known by the name of the Minnie Hill Palmer House, is situated in Chatsworth Park South. A small museum dedicated to the history of the community of Chatsworth and its early pioneer days was set-up in the cottage, and tours are offered there on the first Sunday of each month between 1 and 4pm, conducted by the Chatsworth Historical Society.
