Beacon Hill Neighborhood

Historic Beacon Hill is mostly a residential neighborhood north of the Boston Common and Public Gardens. Most people think of city living as anonymous and isolating. Here you can still find examples of brick Federal style homes, decorative artwork and Greek Revival and Victorian architecture.

Beacon Hill contains a South Slope, a North Slope and a Flat of the Hill. Charles Street is the neighborhood’s most famous street, known for its wonderful antique shops – more than 40. Most of the elevation of Beacon Hill has long been stripped away to fill in other developing areas and landfills.
