Description

The article explores a history on the nomenclature of Federal Hill, deciding the naming was mostly due to the rise of federal-style houses developed in the mid-1700s that predate other architectural developments. The article also theorizes that the Dorr Rebelion of 1842 played a role in the naming of Federal Hill. Rebels had meetings "on the hill" where federal houses were on Atwells Avenue. The surrounding and quelling of the rebellion by federal troops is also theorized to be part of the development.
