Hilltop’s Neighborhood Churches

We have long wondered how many churches are on Hilltop, as it seems there is one on every block. This weekend we embarked on journey that took us up and down the streets of Hilltop so we could find out. After almost five hours in the car, we got our answer. We photo documented 44 Hilltop churches.

For the purpose of our search, we used the following boundaries for Hilltop: 6th Avenue to 28th Street and Sprague Avenue to Tacoma Avenue. A few of the churches we included are just over the boundaries we used, but we included them anyway. Some we photographed do not appear to be in use, but we documented them anyway. We did our best to provide accurate names and addresses.

Here is what we found:
