  • The Hillview Free Library was established in 1899 when Jane Keyes Hamilton, a resident of New York City and a visitor to Diamond Point decided the community should have a library.
  • In 1901, having outgrown the original building, a friend, architect J. Dickinson Hunter, designed the stunning stone arched structure, whose curved door opened into an oak lined great room.
  • The "Great Room" in the Hillview Free Library is the scene of grant sponsored concerts, art exhibits and lectures.
  • Of special interest is our collection of historical and rare books on the Adirondacks, and our original Seneca Ray Stoddard photographs.
  • In 1967, a children's room was added.
  • Readers have at their disposal over 15,000 books in the library's collection.
