The Starr Hill neighborhood is located between downtown Charlottesville and UVA. It is home to several churches as well as Jefferson High School and the City Yard.[1]

Starr Hill got its name because it was home to many educated and wealthy black families, or "Stars." The origin of the extra "r" in "Starr" is unknown.[2]
