Sherrie Hill


Sherrie Hill grew up in Southeastern Illinois, where visiting ‘The Old Slave House’ when you had out-of-town company was somewhat of a local tradition. Sharing its story was considered an opportunity that shouldn’t be passed up.

The Old Slave House (Hickory Hill) is considered a local treasure, not to be taken for granted, and family stories are something to be passed on, shared and not forgotten.

Sherrie was raised by her grandparents, and is very thankful that they cared enough to do so.

Since it was built, many people have come and gone through the gates of Hickory Hill, but if they were people of color they usually left in chains to be sold into slavery in Kentucky, or traded out as payment of debts. A well trained slave was as good as cash, sometimes better. It was a way of life that didn’t die easily.
