Long Description:
Hillcrest got it's name from its location on a knoll overlooking West Main Street.

The house is a combination of Federal and Greek Revival design elements. The entire house is constructed of painted brick. It is predominately Federal on the exterior, with steeped gables, linked end wall chimneys and gable fanlights. The Greek Revival elements are found in the interior of the home.

Edward F. Dibble purchased the home in 1902. He made improvements, including adding the semicircular portico with it's Ionic columns.

It is an imposing site above Main Street and is the finest and most architecturally significant residence in the village of Lima.
