Hillyard Historic Business District

Hillyard Historic Business District

The Hillyard Historic Business District, commonly known as the “Market Street” District, is a contiguous façade of commercial block buildings erected between 1901 to 1948. The simple one and two-story buildings represent the construction, materials and design of early twentieth century commercial structures associated with a typical working-class town such as Hillyard, a community platted in 1892. In that same year the Great Northern Railroad began construction of its Western Regional Terminal Facility, and its huge rail yard and locomotive shops. With strong economic ties to activities and business generated by Great Northern, Hillyard continued to expand as the railroad prospered.
