Located in northern Aitkin County, Minnesota, Hill City was incorporated in 1910, separating from Hill Lake Township in 1911. A post office had been established there in 1901. The community is situated along the shores of Hill Lake, and named for the large hill at the southern end of the lake, which is known locally as Quadna Mountain. Hill Lake, on the eastern part of the city, is a popular site for fishing, boating and swimming.
