Beacon Hill is a historic neighborhood in Boston, Massachusetts, and the hill upon which the Massachusetts State House resides. The term "Beacon Hill" is used locally as a metonym to refer to the state government or the legislature itself, much like Washington, D.C.'s "Capitol Hill" does at the federal level.
Federal-style rowhouses, narrow gaslit streets and brick sidewalks adorn the neighborhood, which is generally regarded as one of the more desirable and expensive in Boston. According to the 2010 U.S. Census, the population of Boston's Beacon Hill neighborhood is 9,023.

Very interesting history and nice walk through a beautiful neighborhood. Cool to see one the first public schools for african americans in the counrty. Note the sights arent all marked.... finding them required some persistence and googling.

A nice little walk (about 45 minutes) to make on a sunny day. Download the audio book ($1.20) beforehand so you can hear the stories behind the places you visit.
