I am generating a histogram but want to superimpose additional lines for
certain values on the x-axis. However, the additional line is basically
hidden behind one of the histogram bars, only appearing from the top of
the bar to the top of the graph. Is there a way to bring the additional
line to the top so that it is drawn on top of the histogram?

You are right that an xline() becomes hidden behind the histogram. But
with -twoway histogram- you may add a line, e.g. using the -scatteri-
plottype:
   sysuse auto
   twoway (histogram mpg)(scatteri 0 20 0.1 20 , connect(l) msymbol(i))

Hope this helps
