George Mallory Hendee
George Mallory Hendee
Hendee had won the National Amateur High Wheel Championship of the United States in 1886 and held the title until 1892. After retiring from professional racing in 1895, the former champion continued to be involved in the bicycle trade, and in 1897 he established his own manufacturing firm in Springfield, Massachusetts. Born in Watertown, Connecticut, in 1866, Hendee had a keen curiosity and taught himself to ride a highwheel bicycle at age 15. He won the U.S. Amateur Champion title at age 16 in 1882 and held it until 1886. During his racing career, Hendee won 302 out of 309 races. In his last race in 1897, he won the World Championship.

George Mallory Hendee's Hilltop Farm - near Sringfield, Massachusetts
George Mallory Hendee's Hilltop Farm - near Sringfield, Massachusetts
Hilltop Farm – “From 1913-1925 George Hendee, of Indian Motorcycle fame, purchased 24 parcels in this corner of town and created Hilltop Farm. Hendee’s holdings ultimately totaled 500 acres, a good-sized operation in the Northeast for the early 20th century. Hendee lived at Hilltop until 1940 when ill health forced him to sell. To some people, George Hendee is an icon. Indian Motorcycles are revered by the people who revere such things, and it’s pretty neat to learn that he started this very farm. To their credit, Hilltop does indeed have some historical displays set up about Mr. Hendee and it’s the stuff like that that drive me to think about this place as sort of a museum. He’s so important that I will now write a bit more about him, again from Hilltop’s website: In 1897 George Mallory Hendee, a former highwheel bicycle champion, founded the company that would later launch the Indian motorcycle. Introduced in 1901, Indian was the first commercially successful, gasoline-powered motorcycle in the U.S. The company was known as Hendee Manufacturing Co., until 1923 when it was renamed Indian Motocycle Co. Born in Watertown, Connecticut, in 1866, Hendee had a keen curiosity and taught himself to ride a highwheel bicycle at age 15. He won the U.S. Amateur Champion title at age 16 in 1882 and held it until 1886. During his racing career, Hendee won 302 out of 309 races. In his last race in 1897, he won the World Championship. Hendee was a prominent figure in bicycling, holding positions in local, state and national organizations. He also sponsored racers and races, which lead to his interest in developing a motorized pacing bike. In 1900, Hendee met engineering wizard Carl “Oscar” Hedstrom and witnessed the superior performance of Hedstrom’s pacer. He recognized the commercial potential of the bike for the general public. In January 1901 Hendee recruited Hedstrom to join his company in Springfield, Massachusetts as chief designer and engineer of a “motorized bicycle for the masses.” In May 1901, the Indian prototyple was successfully tested on a steep hill in Springfield. Hendee Manufacturing eventually became the largest employer in Springfield with 3200 employees. Despite competition from 200 other motocycle brands, by 1913 the company was the largest motorcycle company in the world with annual production of 32,000 units. Hendee stepped down as president of Hendee Manufacturing in 1915 and as chairman in 1916 and retired to his 500-acre Hilltop Farm and 17-room Hilltop Manor. He raised a prized herd of Guernsey cows known as Hilltop Butterfats, which became well-known throughout the cattle breeding industry. He also established a model poultry plant for the breeding of white leghorn chickens. Hilltop Farm became an important producer of milk, dairy and poultry products. During WWI, Hendee was the volunteer postmaster of the YMCA in France and oversaw delivery of mail to troops in the front lines. Hendee, a noted philanthropist, was instrumental in bringing a Shriners Hospital for Crippled Children to Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1925. He generously supported many other Springfield organizations. After many years of failing health, Hendee died in 1943 at the age of 76. He and his widow Edith Hale Hendee had no children. Hendee was inducted into the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 1998 and the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame in 2010 . . . Noticeable from the roadway is a great white barn calculated to be sufficient for a farm of considerable scope and dimensions. The two great towers bordering the entrance are more than ornamental however; they’re silos and of prodigious capacity. The rest of this main floor is given up to hay storage and for farm wagons and implements. It could also store a locomotive or a whole train of cars, for it is mammoth in size. The ground floor reached from the lower level is done off in concrete and plaster and there is room for a “tie up” of an army of cattle. Off to the left of this good old-fashioned barn is a hen emporium with countless runs for thousands of biddies.” [Hilltop Farm; Connecticut Museum Quest - http://www.ctmuseumquest.com/?page_id=16337]
