One of the earliest families to migrate to what became Spencer County was the Hills, who arrived in 1784.
Capt. Hardy Hill and his wife Margaret (Wallace) may have been the first couple to sit down for dinner in what became Spencer County in 1824. Before then, they would have been having dinner in Shelby County.
Prior to 1824, land north of the Salt River was in Shelby County and that south of the river was in Nelson.
The Hills built their log cabins in 1784, some two miles west of Taylorsville on the Boston Branch of Salt River.
