Trails & Trees: A History of IH’s Green Areas & Bridle Trails Sunday, May 21, 2023 In the early 1900s, Indian Hill was a checkerboard of small farms. When the population shifted as city dwellers searched for fresh air and green areas, Indian Hill land began to transition. Trees were planted, horse trails were created, and the roots were sown for today’s Green Areas. Today, with the generosity of Indian Hill residents, over 3,500 acres have become a rich and diverse nature preserve that is unique in the Midwest.
