Taking its name from early pioneer days when South Hill overlooked a creek that flowed through the center of Lexington, this neighborhood is a historic district just south of the city’s center.

South Hill’s homes are among the loveliest in Lexington, the earliest dating to the turn of the century. Bounded by High Street to the north, Pine Street to the south, South Limestone Street to the east, and South Broadway to the west, the South Hill neighborhood has remained largely untouched in character despite the growth of the city all around it.

Many of the South Hill homes that date from the early 1900s are Federal or Greek Revival in design. The area also includes many homes built shortly after the Civil War. While the mix of homes is aesthetically pleasing, the scale and lot size of properties can differ widely from bordering streets.

Despite the historic nature of many properties, there are some modern houses mixed in with older homes. Many feature brick exteriors, wrought iron fencing, and other details that make them blend seamlessly with the historic neighborhood feel.

South Hill is considered the heart and soul of Lexington, but the surrounding community is lively and includes the campus of the University of Kentucky. Close access to the university encourages attendance by South Hill residents at university cultural performances and Wildcat sporting events.

South Hill is also within minutes of Red Mile. Taking its name from the red clay track, Red Mile is the second oldest harness-racing track in the world. While horse racing dominates, the Red Mile is often the site for concerts, galas, weddings, and other community social events.
