Beacon Hill is rich in history as well as notable antique and boutique shopping and many charming cafés. Its own shining beacon is The Massachusetts State House with its 23-carat gold clad domed roof erected in 1798 on the original site of John Hancock’s farmhouse. With a short walk to the Charles River’s Esplanade and the Boston Common and Public Gardens at its feet, Beacon Hill offers residents easy access to some of the City’s most beautiful public outdoor spaces. Beacon Hill is supremely walkable, accessible by the Green Line and offers a wealth of commuting options north and south via the Central Artery and west along Storrow and Memorial Drives.
