Bill's Valley

-As transcribed from page 177

Bill's Valley is wholly in the town of Arcadia and may be said to cover or include sections 11, 12, 13 and 14 in 20-10.  The valley is more of a depression than a valley, as it has no real creek or watercourse.  It was settled in 1860 by John Bill, Sr., and soon others came, making it an early or pioneer community, principally of German families, though later many of the settlers were Irish.  The soil in the valley is good and the farms valuable.  In all ways the progress of the people has keep pace with that of the best settlements in the county.  While it has been more or less a mixed interest in public matters affecting the welfare of the town, county and State.
