Black Hill is a settlement in South Australia. Black Hill is between the Mount Lofty Ranges and the Murray River on the banks of the Marne River. Until 1918, when many place names were changed if they sounded German, Black Hill was known as Friedensthal.
The Black Hill post office and shop have long since closed. The school operated from 1894 to 1945. The post office opened in 1891. The township was first settled in 1890 as Friedensthal (Valley of Peace). Prior to that, it had been part of a station owned by Thomas R Reynolds. Black Hill Rocks provide the source for two commercial granite quarries that have been used in significant buildings in Australia.
