House Tour 2019
June 23, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm| $20.00
After a sold-out success last year, Hill 2000 Neighborhood Association is sponsoring the second Hill House Tour on June 23, 2019. Proceeds from the tour benefit Hill 2000’s many neighborhood projects, such as the Hill Neighborhood Center.
Our intention is to showcase ten houses on the tour. In addition to the bold new construction designs dotting The Hill, several rehabbed shotgun style homes are on display – all creative demonstrations of making small houses and small plots comfortably livable and demonstrating what can be done when an established neighborhood is determined to maintain its sense of community. Institutions and businesses on The Hill included in the Tour echo the theme of new uses for historic spaces.
And there’s more! Just as our homes collectively carry the story of the lives of the early Italian immigrants and the generations of their families to follow, our built culture supports our traditions by weaving the new and the old. The 800-year-old traditional Corpus Christi procession will begin after 11am Mass and process through a few blocks of the neighborhood. You are encouraged to join or to observe this reverential ceremony.
Our new Piazza’s grand opening is also scheduled for the 23rd at 2:00. You can be among the first to view and then visit our lovely, serene fountain and garden directly across from St. Ambrose Church steps.

Please pay attention to driveways, and alleyways so as not to block them. Try to place your car close to the curb, and for your car’s sake fold your street side mirror in if possible.
