DescriptionMaryhill was founded in 1907 by Samuel Hill, who thought the sunny site had the makings of an agricultural utopia. An eccentric lawyer and pacifist Quaker, Hill also was a talented road and monument builder; his works include the Peace Arch Historical State and Provincial Park in Blaine and the Columbia River Scenic Highway on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge.
In 1913 Hill also built the 3.6-mile Maryhill Loops Road , just east of the junction of US 97 and SR 14. The twisting byway was the first in Washington to be paved and is a favorite of pedestrians and bicyclists.
