Mears Park once rose high above the surrounding land. Beginning in 1851, it was known as “Baptist Hill” because leading members of the First Baptist congregation chose it as the location for their first chapel. Josh Smith, the owner of the rest of the hill, found the terrain too steep for further building, so he donated the land to the city as a park. The hill was leveled after a new church was built three blocks north of here.
