 About Pill Hill Rochester

Situated atop a limestone bluff, nestled amongst the tall trees, hidden from the hustle and bustle of life sits Rochester, Minnesota's historic Pill Hill District. The Who's Who of Rochester have always flocked to the residential district, seeking the architecturally renowned homes and convenient location. The area has especially attracted the doctors and staff of Mayo Clinic as it is within walking distance to their work. Thus the locals affectionately dubbed the beautiful bluff "Pill Hill".

Here in Pill Hill, you'll find the former home of Dr. William Mayo, founding partner of the world famous Mayo Clinic. Lining the streets are homes by noted architects Henry Crawford, Ellerbe Architects and Garfield Schwartz, many on the National Historic Registry. One such home which is open to the public is the Plummer House, home of noted Mayo physician Dr. Henry Plummer.

In 1990, the neighborhood was added to the National Register of Historic Places. The district is situated southwest of downtown Rochester and parallels the southern path between the Mayo Clinic's Gonda Building and St. Mary's Hospital. The Pill Hill District boundaries are roughly 3rd St. SW to 9th St. SW and 7th Ave SW to 10th Avenue SW. (map) Home prices in this area can sell for $400,000 to 500,000 while a grand home on the historic register may sell for over 1,000,000. Historic SW Rochester is a broader area and includes older homes of character starting around $175,000.
