Scenery Hill Historic District is a historic district in Scenery Hill, Pennsylvania, listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996. It is a typical Pike Town along the National Road. Most of the buildings in the district were constructed during the two boom periods of the road, c. 1818 – c. 1853 and c. 1910 – c. 1930. The district contains 93 buildings of many types: taverns, shops, service facilities and residences. Most of the commercial buildings are clustered in the center of the district, east of the National Road (now U.S. Route 40) intersection with Spring Valley and Fava Farm Roads.
Two buildings also have separate listings on the nation register. Hill's Tavern (c. 1794) is the central landmark in the district and, until a fire on August 17, 2015 heavily damaged it, had still been in use as a restaurant and hotel, now called the Century Inn. The Ringland Tavern (1827) is not currently in use.
