William Hile and the Great Columbia County Ostrich Experiment

By Robert Dunkelberger

Years in the making, this is the most complete story yet written of the fabled African Ostrich Farm and Feather Company, the only cold-weather ostrich farm in the United States. Founded in 1910 by Pennsylvania native William Hile, it is a story of the widespread belief at the beginning of the 20th Century that buying stock in any scheme, no matter how far-fetched, was sure to make the investor rich! In this case, as in many others, it did not.
