Welcome to West Hill
Wealthy residents, who were once concentrated in the Fir Hill neighborhood, began moving westward to the now-historic West Hill neighborhood. The reason behind this westward migration was relatively simple – it allowed the affluent to move both uphill and upwind of the increasingly noxious air pollution that was being generated by heavy industry. The West Hill neighborhood contains a treasure-trove of Victorian-era architecture – cemeteries, homes, and winding brick streets.
