Welcome to Grafton Hill! Our neighborhood borders Downtown Dayton just across the Great Miami River and is roughly defined by Grand, Plymouth, Forest and Salem Avenues. Grafton Hill represents a movement of Dayton’s affluent residents from the center city northward across the Great Miami River during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Grafton Hill contains some of Dayton’s best examples of stately, high-style residential architecture from this period including Queen Anne, Neoclassical, Tudor, Jacobethan and Craftsman homes.
Today Grafton Hill maintains its historic charm and an active neighborhood association. The Dayton Art Institute, Dayton Masonic Center and Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church are all nestled within the boundaries of Grafton Hill. Grandview Medical Center is also a great neighbor to our north. Grafton Hill is within walking distance of the best of Downtown Dayton–including the Schuster Center for the Arts, Riverscape Metropark, River Run, the bike path and much, much more!
