The neighborhood houses Bomberger Recreation Center (with is swimming pool), the Liederkranz-Turner German Society Hall, the High Street Art Gallery with is home to the Dayton Society of Painters and Sculptors, and Stivers Intermediate School, a music magnet school for the Dayton public schools system.

A monthly newsletter is published to keep the residents up-to-date on current projects and events in the neighborhood and to encourage their participation.

St. Anne’s Hill has a fascinating past, an impressive present and a bright future. The society welcomes visitors to the neighborhood. Those who are interested in becoming a resident or friend may call 224-HILL.
