Walking Tours : New for 2022

Beacon Hill From Both Sides

Learn the history of both the North and South Slopes and why they became such separate neighborhoods.

Beacon Hill From Both Sides
From the beginning, the presence of each has had an important effect on the history and development of the other.

We will explore the many different people who lived here and contributed to the story of Beacon Hill, including the Native Massachusett people, Boston’s African American community, Gay and Lesbian community, and 19th century immigrant populations. We will see some of Boston’s handsomest nineteenth century houses, and hear about the fascinating lives of the people who lived in them.
