OUR HISTORY: The neighborhood of St. Anne's Hill is a historic community located one mile east of Downtown Dayton, just beyond the historic Oregon Arts District and the (since lost) Haymarket District. The area was part of the original out-lots of the city of Dayton, which were plotted in 1815 by Daniel C. Cooper, an early settler of the city. Some might call it the first suburb of Dayton. By the 1830's, the first documented use of the name "St. Anne's Hill" appeared in newspaper advertisements promoting the sale of nursery stock from a local greenhouse. St. Anne's Hill became a registered historic district in 1974. The holiday tour begain in 1983.

ABOUT US: The St. Anne's Hill Historic District neighborhood relies on the efforts of the volunteers in St. Anne's Hill Historic Society, its residents and the community to ensure its continued success and growth. The St. Anne’s Hill Historic Society is an all-volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Visit www.stanneshill.org for more information.
