History[edit]

Church Hill, or Churchill as it was later shortened by Gallatin County Road Department, is located a few miles away from Amsterdam on a locally prominent hill. Churchill is the site of the Dutch community's church- the 1st Christian Reformed Church, today known as Manhattan Christian Reformed Church; and related parent-operated private P-12 school, Manhattan Christian School. The large church on the hill is the probable origin of the name.[2] Not to be outdone, The Milwaukee Road Railway designated the other side of "the hill" as Holland, and made a siding for agricultural goods on its railway about two miles to the east, and designated it as the Holland Siding.
