The naming of this "area" appears to be an informal, local description, based on the name of the Hill Top Cafe. It is not incorporated, and not a CDP. It does show on Google and Yahoo mapping, but not on a few printed maps we have used, and not in any state or research directories, and therefore doesn't seem to officially exist! If you know differently, please contact us.
Not to be confused with Hilltop, a census-designated place (CDP) in Frio County, or with Hilltop Lakes or other Hilltops and Hill Tops located outside the Texas Hill Country
Postal addresses in this area carry the Fredericksburg post office name.
