The Hill Membership

The iconic entrepreneur James J. Hill had a vision to provide the people of Minnesota with a reference library to support and grow cultural and economic development. Almost 100 years later, the Hill continues this mission by providing access to premier resources, knowledge and network.

Hill members are people who have a big dream and take risks, who need a space for idea sharing and who understand the value of our resources.

Be a part of the legacy and join the Hill today.

We are pleased to announce the completion of our elevator renovation at the James J. Hill Center. This project was financed in part with funds provided by the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund through the Minnesota Historical Society and the F. R. Bigelow Foundation. It will greatly increase our ability to serve patrons with accessibility needs.

Please access our ground floor elevator entrance via Kellogg Ave at the back of the building. Please ring the doorbell on the right hand side of door and a Hill staff member will assist you. If you have questions or concerns please call 651.265.5500. We look forward to having you visit our brand new elevator!
