Beacon Hill

The beacon on this hill that used to warn settlers about foreign invasions is long gone, and today Beacon Hill is a close-knit community in a downtown location.

The neighborhood's cobblestone streets and brick rowhouses directly border the Boston Common and the Public Garden, American's first botanical garden.
The gold leaf of the State House Rotunda adorns the hill and shines across the Common.
A great place for families, this historic neighborhood is a blend of classic Boston architecture and expansive green space]

Boston's first resident, Reverend William Blaxton, lived alone on Beacon Hill for 5 years before settlers arrived in 1622.
Now this neighborhood is home to over 10,000 people.
