Emerald Hill

Emerald Hill

Salisbury

 

Emerald Hill was originally part of Avondale Farm and was incorporated into the city of Salisbury, Southern Rhodesia in 1934. The northwest corner of Emerald Hill, known as New Emerald Hill was originally under the Marlborough Town Management Board and was also incorporated into the City of Salisbury in 1971 until the 1990’s.

Emerald Hill is a north-western suburb of Harare, Zimbabwe, named so because of either the colour of the hill due to the large number of trees or an Irish connection (many of the roads in the suburb have Irish names).
