A portion of the Spring Hill neighborhood was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989. The neighborhood is located on a ridge in the central part of Somerville. Many of the homes in this neighborhood have sweeping views of Cambridge, Boston, and the hills in Arlington and Belmont.
There are a wide variety of amenities just a short walk or bike ride away from Spring Hill center. If you do decide to bike, watch out for the hill on Central Street that has people walking their bikes up
This neighborhood was once home to Winter Hill Gang leader Howie Winter and journalist Howie Carr.
