SAVIN HILL HORNPIPE. American, Hornpipe (cut time). F Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCC. Savin Hill is a neighborhood in Dorchester, in the city of Boston. It was originally settled in the 1630's and was known as Rocky Hill. An estate was built there in the early 1800's by theWiswall family, who sold it in to Joseph Tuttle. Tuttle transformed and enlarged the Wiswall House into a seaside hotel for the wealthy, renaming it The Tuttle House, success guaranteed as it was on a stagecoach line and eventually on a railroad line. Tuttle alsochanged the name of this section of Dorchester to Savin Hill as the top of the hill was covered in a type of Juniper tree known as Savin Juniper.
