History of David Hill CLC

The David Hill Community Learning Center was opened to students on August 29, 2007. The original elementary school building was constructed in 1928 and named in honor of David E. Hill (1825-1901). In 1851, David E. Hill joined three other men to form the Akron Sewer Pipe Co., the first sewer pipe factory in the United States. In 1873, Hill formed another pipe company – the Hill Sewer Pipe Co. – and served as president. In 1900, the two companies merged to form the American Sewer Pipe Co. Besides founding the sewer pipe industry, Hill also served as the first president of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co., a member of City Council, a county commissioner, and a member of the Middlebury School Board.
