The Hill House was home to General and Mrs. George Armstrong Custer from 1871-1873. General Custer’s many Russian Wolfhounds and other hunting dogs often created havoc in Aunt Beck’s garden.
If you love historic buildings, beautiful gardens, and preserving the past, we can use your help. You will learn about the Brown, Pusey and Hill families connected to the house and help us tell their stories to the thousands of visitors that pass through its doors each year. Restored in 1923 by Drs. William A. Pusey and Alfred Brown Pusey it was renamed, The Brown-Pusey House. The house and Cunningham Garden continue to be a popular site for weddings, meetings, genealogy researchers and tourists of all ages. It is a gathering place for the Hardin County Community.
