We moved to this area in 2019 (closer to Tilles Park area), after not being able to find a good home for us in my other preferred areas( Webster Grove, Brentwood, and Kirkwood). Couldn't be any happier in this rare small gem, amazing key location, and amenities, A schools and safety, and last but not least, amazingly friendly and welcoming neighborhood. Thank you Rock Hill, I am very happy to be part of this community, and I highly recommend it!

Lived here in the same home since 1974. If one searches the top ten cities to live in, here in Missouri, one will find that Rock Hill is smack dab in the center of four out of the ten, which are Glendale, Kirkwood, Webster Groves and Brentwood! When you live in Rock Hill, you have found a "Shangri La" of sorts. No matter where you turn you find something to like.
While St. Louis is still a city with problems, Rock Hill is a small quiet community with easy highway access and a good school district (Webster Groves SD, there is no Rock Hill SD). There are many new families moving in, making the streets very kid friendly and safe.
