East Hill, Pensacola is a beautiful Florida town with historical roots. Beginning in the late 1800’s, East Hill was a thriving hub for trading and commerce. Later on, East Hill became one of the most desired locations in Pensacola: its high ground offered protection from flooding and storms, and it had a great location because it was close to the downtown area, and to Pensacola’s bustling port. Influenced by Spanish architecture, striking, high-quality homes were constructed carefully by artists and craftsmen. From vast mansions to enchanting cottages, East Hill’s suburban, tree-lined streets were full of beautiful housing options.
Many newer, more modern houses started being built in the mid 1900’s, and more people flocked to East Hill. However, as the population grew, many people began to appreciate the style and charm of the older East Hill Homes. Nowadays, East Hill is a thriving and diverse town. It’s a multicultural community that includes people from all walks of life- professionals, tradesmen, and artists. The eclectic neighborhoods of East Hill are full of old charming houses, as well as contemporary, trendy ones.
