The Panhandle Sights

North Hill Preservation District

  • Historic District/Site

Updated 05/12/2014

Fodor's Review

Pensacola's affluent families, many made rich in the turn-of-the-20th-century timber boom, built their homes in this area where British and Spanish fortresses once stood. Residents still occasionally unearth cannonballs in their gardens. North Hill occupies 50 blocks, with more than 600 homes in Queen Anne, neoclassical, Tudor revival, and Mediterranean styles. Take a drive through this community, but remember these are private residences. Places of general interest include the 1902 Spanish mission–style Christ Episcopal Church; Lee Square, where a 50-foot obelisk stands as a tribute to the Confederacy; and Fort George, an undeveloped parcel at the site of the largest of three forts built by the British in 1778.
