"The hills are like a personal stairmaster."

Spring Hill is a neighborhood in the central part of Somerville. Situated on a glacial ridge, it was once a farming community. It's about as far from those rural days as one could imagine now. The once peaceful hillside is now a bustling neighborhood made up of multi-family houses. It's hard to imagine that Central or Lowell Street was a mid-1600's road. Check out the old Round House on Atherton Street for a feeling of yester year.

The good thing about Spring Hill is that it is gentrifying but not so much that it is losing its old character. There aren't any bad blocks but the farther you get from Broadway, the quieter it is.
Oh, and you'll get good exercise since you'll be walking up and down steep hills to get anywhere.
