Richmond Neighborhood Restoration has announced that the newly renovated Hill House is for sale.

The house is the fifth residential property and was the “most difficult” to restore, Executive Director Roxie Deer said. The organization has been confronted with many challenges since the restoration started during the pandemic, in 2021. 

More than 50 volunteers and sponsors contributed to the renovation. At an open house on May 16, the group invited residents to tour and celebrated the completed renovation with food and music. 

Deer says this house is unique because only two families have lived there since it was built in 1905. Hill House, at 2237 E. Main St., has a convenient location that is close to downtown across from Glen Miller Park and Test Intermediate School. The sale price is $290,000 for three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms and a detached two-door garage. 

Deer hopes to sell the house to people from the community and heighten a sense of pride for living in Richmond. The home purchase comes with season tickets for the Richmond Symphony Orchestra and a year-long membership to the Richmond Art Museum. 

RNR plans to restore three to five more buildings downtown, and they have started restoration on the Dulin House in the Starr Historic Neighborhood. 

“If we can keep our neighborhoods clean and well-kept, then they’re safer and more inviting. I hope that the next family cares for and loves it the way that our organization does,” Deer said. 

Deer was recently interviewed about RNR’s activities and other topics for the Western Wayne News podcast. Episodes can be found online at or in podcast directories.
