Boston Neighborhoods : Beacon Hill

Recommended Posts

Introduction

I was doing a bit of housekeeping on my hard drive when I found a batch of photos from my Boston trip that were previously unpublished. Here are some samples from Beacon Hill, a prestigious neighborhood in downtown Boston.

Beacon Hill is a 19th-century downtown Boston residential neighborhood situated directly north of the Boston Common and the Boston Public Garden. Approximately one mile square, Beacon Hill is known for its beautiful doors and door surrounds, brass door knockers, decorative iron work, brick sidewalks, perpetually-burning gas lights, flowering pear trees, window boxes, and hidden gardens. Its architecture, mostly brick row houses, includes the Federal, Greek Revival and Victorian periods, as well as early 20th-century colonial revival homes and tenements.

Boston's historical neighborhoods are so amazing! I have never been to Beacon Hill but I did visit Boston once and it really is a neat city with a lot of density. I really had a good time on the Back Bay Tours of the city.
