Historic Inner East contains two historic districts, Huffman and St. Anne’s Hill. Historic Huffman, named for William P. Huffman and his company that became the Huffy Bicycle Company, blends the feeling of a small town, the excitement of downtown, and the security of and friendship of a close-knit community.

The neighborhood is dotted with many businesses, including a few beloved restaurants, along with a variety of places of worship. With an active neighborhood association, events include a St. Patrick’s Day Pot Luck, annual picnic, chili cook-off, holiday caroling, and the only historic home tour in Dayton that incorporates Halloween.

With some of the oldest homes in the region, there are a variety of 19th century architecture styles present including Queen Anne, Victorian Gothic, and Italian Villa. St. Anne’s Hill Historic District is a community of neighbors that continue to work together, improving and preserving their piece of Dayton.

The neighborhood has a variety of points of interest, including Stivers High School, Fifth Street Brew Pub, the Ahiska Turkish Community Center of Dayton, Leiderkranz Turner Hall, Gem City Cafe, Hue House, and Bomberger Park.

With an active neighborhood association and historic society, events include annual Christmas and garden tours, annual spring brunch, the Porch, Patio & Deck Tour, and the neighborhood wide-garage sale, Trash ‘n Treasure. Homes here are largely in the Victorian and Queen Anne style, similar to its neighbor Huffman.
