About North Hill

NORTH HILL neighborhood, on a wooded bluff along Rt 322 and Phoenixville Pike, North of West Chester, PA, owes its name to John D. Jacob who, in 1938, purchased the William P. Marshall farm and later the Abner Hoopes farm for the purpose of offering building lots to home builders. The homes in the neighborhood were primarily constructed from the 1940s through 1960s, generally on 1/2 to 1+ acre lots.

Civic Association

The North Hill Civic Association (NHCA) was formed to care for the lake and 23 acres of common property. Very low annual dues are collected to cover the cost of maintaining and insuring the property, which is the hub of many activities throughout the year. Another truly unique feature of our common property is the Fern Hill Serpentine Barrens, which has been designated by the Nature Conservancy as one of the most important natural areas in Pennsylvania.
