Black Hill was first settled in 1890. The township is situated some 110 kms north east of Adelaide, nestled in a valley on the River Marne, named after a sister river in France. Black Hill which was named FRIEDENSTHAL (Valley of Peace) prior to World War 1 was first owned as a station by Thomas R Reynolds. In 1891, this land was subdivided and purchased by families, many of whom still have descendants living at Black Hill today.

The name Black Hill was derived from the native pines on the granite hill, as these trees together with the black granite accentuated the hills for many miles. Very few places in South Australia can match the superb spread of eucalypltus along the Marne Valley.
