  1. Sam Hill was also big in the Pacific Northwest, where he is known for building a road through the Columbia River Gorge, which is still in use as a scenic drive. His legacy is what is now the Maryhill Museum and a nearby replica of Stonehenge. He built a mansion for his wife on a massive hill long the river not far from Goldendale, Washington. I don’t think she ever saw it. But Sam stayed. Ol’ Sam got around. He’s buried just below Maryhill, overlooking the river.
