ABOUT THE PARKAcreage: 0.1
Queen Anne Hill was first named “Eden” by Thomas Mercer, who was certain he’d found the Promised Land. Then it was named “Gaier Hill” because Jacob Gaier and his family lived on the hilltop. Later it became known for its Queen Anne architecture. Queen Anne Avenue was known as “Temperance Way” during Prohibition Days because only a sober man would be able to drive up and down it.
