Edward Hill (the painter) was one year old when his family moved to the United States from England in 1844, settling in Taunton, Massachusetts. Moving much of the time, the family at long last settled in Gardner, Massachusetts in 1860. Edward Hill and his brother, Thomas Hill (to become a famous painter), worked decorating furniture. Edward Hill moved to San Francisco in 1862 where and shared a painting studio with Thomas who had settled there a year earlier. By 1864, Edward returned to Boston and began painting seriously as a profession.

Edward Hill married in 1869 and moved to Littleton, New Hampshire the following year. In 1874, the family moved again to Lancaster, New Hampshire. In 1875, from here that Hill painted Presidential Range From Lancaster, one of his earliest known White Mountain oil paintings.

From 1877 to 1892, Edward Hill was artist-in-residence at the Profile House in Franconia Notch. The surrounding area provided subjects for his paintings that proved popular with the hotel guests, Profile Lake, the Old Man of the Mountain, Echo Lake, Eagle Cliff, The Flume, and Mount Lafayette.

During the 1880's Hill was an artist member of the Boston Art Club and exhibited there often. By this time, Hill's financial success and artistic acceptance were established.
