Beacon Hill

Notable for it's gas lit streets, cobblestone, and brick and stone row houses, Beacon Hill remains one of Boston's upscale neighborhoods. The area is bordered by the Boston Common, Massachusetts General Hospital, and the Charles River. During the construction of the State House, with its gilded dome, the original three hills of the area were leveled off to fill in the Charles River. The newly flattened hill was home to the neighborhood's first mansions. Beacon hill was once the home to Henry David Thoreau, Robert Frost, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Sylvia Plath.

Today, Beacon Hill is home to many of the city's business professionals and doctors with proximity to Mass General Hospital and Financial District. Desirable to visitors with 3 major T lines running through it and walking distance from Kendall Square and Back Bay, enjoy Beacon Hill with antique shopping along Charles Street and a photograph on Acorn street (America's most photographed street).
