Grafton Hill Neighborhood in Dayton, OH

Grafton Hill Neighborhood

The city of Dayton, Ohio describes itself as “rich in talent and history, emerging today as a global technology hub … investing for the future while providing high-quality services to residents, neighborhoods and businesses.”

The builders and developers of the Steele’s Hill-Grafton Hill Historic District, simply known by locals as Grafton Hill, certainly were investing for the future in the 19th century, when this neighborhood was created. The small, 18-block sector of the city has survived decades as fashionable and classic community since its birth in the 1880s. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986, and is also a locally-designated historic district.

Although sometimes considered part of Dayton View, Grafton Hill has its own separate history. At the time Grafton was being developed, the population of Dayton was beginning to move from the city center outward, north of the Miami River. The additions of the exclusive Belmonte Park residential area, the Dayton Art Institute and the Dayton Masonic Temple added to the cache of the community, which it retained until the 1950s, when the area began declining.

But like many historic urban villages, Grafton Hill is experiencing a revival as more visitors discover the charm of these classic homes. The area is dominated by the Jacobeathan style but also contains Queen Anne, Victorian, Craftsman and Tudor style homes. Not only is each home unique in style, they are huge! 2500-3900 square feet is not at all unusual, and some homes are much bigger.

New residents have to opportunity to join Grafton Hill Association, a strong and committed neighborhood organization which undertakes many activities to maintain and improve the neighborhood. There are still plenty of long-term residents in Grafton Hill, as well – living here happily for 40-plus years – and even multiple generations in the same family who are neighbors.

While these stately homes are drawing new residents into Grafton Hill, when residents are asked to name their favorite thing about living in Grafton Hill, the consistent answer is, “the neighbors.” That says enormous amounts about the sense of community you find in Grafton Hill.
