Beacon Hill Boston MA
Beacon Hill BOSTON MA
Beacon Hill is home to the Massachusetts State House and many historical landmarks, including the Boston African American National Historic Site. One of the oldest communities in the City gets its name from the beacon that once stood high on the hill to warn locals about invasions. It’s no surprise that Beacon Hill is a protected historic district.
Beacon Hill has steep streets lined with Federal-style and Victorian brick row houses lit by antique lanterns. The gold-domed Massachusetts State House overlooks Boston Common, with its winter skating pond. Across Charles Street, home to chic boutiques and antiques shops, is the formal Public Garden. The Charles River Esplanade’s Hatch Shell hosts summer concerts.
