The development of Sears Hill as a residential neighborhood took place in three phases that coincided with the growth of Staunton. The first was spurred in part, by its proximity to the major employers of the working and middle classes. Sears Hill is located immediately south of the C&O Railroad tracks and the commercial downtown area and a few blocks west of the original location of Western State Hospital.West Middlebrook Ave, Sears Hill Road and Robertson Street bound it on the west. It is bounded on the east by Greenville Avenue, on the north by the C&O Railroad tracks, and on the south by Gay Street.
