Inscription.  From here, view both sides of Hammond Road that in 1835 boasted a village with a storekeeper, a tailor, a shoemaker, a blacksmith, and many others who carried on a busy community life. To the northeast, observe the 210 acres that Deacon William Smith donated twice for a college campus: in 1835, for what resulted in Albion College; in 1844, for what later became Hillsdale College. This pudding stone was moved in 1992 from the north side of Hammond Road near Smith's residence.
