Beacon Hill

Beacon Hill is one of the most picturesque and beloved neighborhoods in Boston, Massachusetts. It is a quaint and cozy area with a rich history, charming architecture, and a vibrant community.


Location

Located just north of the Boston Common and the Public Garden, Beacon Hill sits atop a hill overlooking the Charles River. Beacon Street borders it to the south, Bowdoin Street to the north, Cambridge Street to the west, and Storrow Drive to the east.

History

Beacon Hill was once home to the Massachusetts State House before it moved to its current location on Beacon Hill's eastern edge in 1798. The neighborhood has a long history dating back to the early 1600s when the Puritans first settled it. Over time, Beacon Hill became a fashionable and affluent area with its elegant homes and proximity to Boston's city center.

Activities

Today, Beacon Hill continues to be a popular destination for locals and tourists alike. The charming cobblestone streets lined with gas lamps, historic brick townhouses, and quaint boutiques make it a perfect place for a stroll. You can also explore the hidden alleys known as "secret gardens" and discover beautiful hidden courtyards.
