About the Mill Hill Neighborhood
Mill Hill is located next to downtown Trenton, a few minutes walk from the Trenton train station. The Mill Hill Historic District spans some 10 linear blocks of mostly 19th century homes. The oldest home in the district was built in the 1826. The newest was completed in 2005.
Mill Hill is a close knit, diverse, and civically active neighborhood. In the 1960s, Mill Hill was saved from certain destruction by aggressive redevelopment. It survived because of the vision and courage of private citizens and enlightened public officials, and benefited from federal funding that enabled critical infrastructure improvements.
Today, Mill Hill is a strong community with a clear and promising future. It is a neighborhood in the old-fashioned sense, where most people get to know many of their neighbors. The interesting social character of our community includes a strong core of professionals, service workers, and artists. There are retired people and quite a few children. Those of us who own and rent homes in Mill Hill include married couples, single men, single women, same-sex couples, economic partners, and multi-generational families. Mill Hill is a model for the friendly and cooperative integration of a socially, culturally, and ethnically diverse population.
