Grafton Hill refers to one of the seven hills of Worcester, Massachusetts, the second largest city in New England. Just as in Rome, Italy, there are seven hills that distinguish its topographic neighborhoods and Grafton Hill is one of the more prominent areas in the city. Grafton Hill is in the southeast part of the city, just east of Main Street. Grafton Hill encompasses most of the 01604 ZIP code and such notable streets as Grafton Street, Hamilton Street, and Plantation Street. There is also a nearby connection to Interstate 290 as well as to Interstate 90 (Massachusetts Turnpike) and the area of Grafton Hill has been known for its heavy Irish and Italian tradition though other ethnic groups are present.
