History

Church Hill, or Churchill as it was later shortened by Gallatin County Road Department, is located a mile away- to the east of Amsterdam on a prominent hill. Churchill is the site of the Dutch community's original 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. 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, designating it as the Holland Siding.
