The Hill District: Hill House


"A house in the heart of The Hill District is one of the best-kept secrets in Allegheny County. Few people who visit leave without being touched in some way.
"Many describe it as a second home and the people there as family. And this week [week of 16 October 1989], this unusual family, which has no ethnic, racial or social boundaries, is celebrating its 25th anniversary." (2)

Hill House is one of the collaborators in and recipients of the NTIA grant which is making this Exhibit possible. Variously referred to as "granddaughter of Irene Kaufmann's turn-of-the-century Settlement House" (3) and as "a one-stop supermarket of human services," (4) Hill House speaks for itself in its online presentation.
