It is a portion of their property which is known as "The Homestead Acre" where the Chatsworth Historical Society is located. The Hills had eight children, two of whom were born in Chatsworth. Their seventh child, Minnie, was born in November 1886 and lived the majority of her life in Chatsworth. Between 1911 and 1913, the Hill family built a cottage on Homestead Acre. Minnie Hill and her husband, Alfred Palmer, lived in this house, now known as the Hill-Palmer Homestead Cottage. Minnie lived there until shortly before her death in March 1981.

The Hill-Palmer Cottage was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. The house is located at 10385 Shadow Oak Drive, Chatsworth, CA 91311.
