Sixth Street Hill

Unrealized till this year East Liverpool may have the distinction of having the steepest hill in the United States. After the Ford Motor Company conducted a search for steep hills on which to test their braking system, it was discovered that East Sixth Street hill (between Grove Alley and College Street) boasted an incline of 33 per cent, which is 3 per cent steeper than San Francisco's famed Nob Hill.

2007 Editor's note: The street has been closed now for many years. Grass and herbage have overtaken the brick pavemnet, but you can still walk up the hill and see the brick underneath the green.

Regular linking, i.e. providing the URL of the East Liverpool Historical Society web site for viewers to click on and be taken to the East Liverpool Historical Society entry portal or to any specific article on the website is legally permitted.
Hyperlinking, or as it is also called framing, without permission is not permitted.
Legally speaking framing is still in a murky area of the law though there have been court cases in which framing has been seen as violation of copyright law. Many cases that were taken to court ended up settling out-of-court with the one doing the framing agreeing to cease framing and to just use a regular link to the other site.
The East Liverpool Historical Society pays fees to keep their site online. A person framing the Society site is effectively presenting the entire East Liverpool Historical Society web site as his own site and doing it at no cost to himself, i.e. stealing the site.
The East Liverpool Historical Society reserves the right to charge such an individual a fee for the use of the Society’s material.
