Named for Joseph J. Hill, a long-time member of the Ralston Center Board of Managers, this facility honors the commitment of Ralston Center’s founders to housing for low-income elders. Mr. Hill is a descendent of the Keen family from whom Ralston Center acquired its property at 36th and Chestnut Streets in the 1880s. As President of Ralston Center from 1993 through 2003, Mr. Hill guided the development and construction of Ralston/Mercy-Douglass House.
