Beacon Hill is a historical neighborhood in Boston, Massachusetts, and the hill upon which the Massachusetts State House resides. The term "Beacon Hill" is locally used 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 locations to live in Boston. The population of Boston's Beacon Hill neighborhood is roughly 9,023.
The shining beacon of Boston's skyline is not her tallest building but one of the shortest, the Massachusetts State House which sits atop Beacon Hill, a true jewel of a neighborhood. Nestled into the side of Beacon Hill students, politicians, financial services professionals walk quaint cobblestone and tree lined streets where majestic brownstones sit shoulder to shoulder.
Here you can stroll the same streets Louisa May Alcott, a young Senator John Kennedy, and Secretary John Kerry have all called home.
Given the rich historical significance of the neighborhood amenities are limited on the Hill itself but within a five minute walk residents have easy access to the restaurants and shops on Charles Street, Whole Foods on Cambridge Street, and some of the finest hospitals in the world. Over the top one finds the seat of government of the Commonwealth and access to the Boston Common through which the waterfront and Financial District is only a few steps away. The diversity of age, background, career choices and housing preferences of the residents makes Beacon Hill a welcoming neighborhood for all people fortunate enough to call it home.
