The City of St. Louis – On The Hill
The Hill District of St. Louis is a well-known Italian neighborhood located just southwest of downtown. This area is home to numerous authentic Italian restaurants, grocery stores, and shops that all have a long history and are still thriving today. Along with the great food and shops, The Hill has a long history of Italian immigrants who came to America in the early 20th century. Religion plays a huge role in The Hill and there are many churches in the area that have been around for years. One such church is St. Ambrose Church, which was established in 1867 by Italian immigrants who moved to St. Louis seeking religious freedom from their home country Italy during this time period. Overall, this tight-knit community is passionate about keeping alive today the Italian culture that was brought over so many years ago!
