Cobblestone streets and red brick homes fill Beacon Hill, one of the original Boston neighborhoods getting its name from a beacon that once stoop atop the hill to warn locals of foreign invasion. Its architecture and layout are reflective of old colonial Boston, consisting of brick row houses with beautiful doors, decorative ironwork, brick sidewalks, narrow streets, and gas lamps. Beacon Hill borders Back Bay, The Boston Common, and The Public Garden. Residents of the neighborhood can shop and relax on Charles Street, Beacon Hill’s main commercial area with various small boutiques, restaurants, and cafes. It is also the home of the State House, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Louisburg Square.
