Louisburg Square

Nestled in the heart of Boston's historic Beacon Hill neighborhood lies a hidden gem known as Louisburg Square. This picturesque, tree-lined square is surrounded by elegant brick townhouses and boasts a rich history that dates back to the 19th century.


History of Louisburg Square

Originally named "Mount Vernon Proprietors" after the wealthy landowners who built their mansions here in the early 19th century, the square was later renamed to honor King Louis XVI of France for his support during the American Revolution. The homes in Louisburg Square were some of the first to be built on Beacon Hill and have remained remarkably preserved over the years, giving visitors a glimpse into Boston's past.

One of the main draws of Louisburg Square is its stunning architecture and charming setting. Take a stroll around the square and admire the historic townhouses, many of which are adorned with beautiful gardens.

Visitors can also enjoy a picnic or relax on one of the benches while taking in the tranquil atmosphere of the square.
