A postcard showing two buffalo or bison at Gage Park in Topeka, Kansas. The first herd of bison at Gage Park was delivered January 16, 1911. They were donated by Joshua Hill. Hill started his career as clerk for the Kansas legislature, and after the 1870 session, he moved to Fredonia, Kansas where he started an insurance and real estate business. Later Hill moved to Louisville, Kentucky, where he purchased a stock farm. The bison were raised on his 400 acre farm near Pontiac, Michigan.
