Historic Boston: Beacon Hill

Oct 28 2021 • 5 mins

Welcome to Historic Boston: Beacon Hill, a walking tour of one of Boston’s best known but least explored neighborhoods. In episode 2, we will start our tour in the Boston Public Garden, where we will introduce the founding story of Boston, from its initial settlement by Native Americans to the arrival of the Puritans. We will also meet the Shawmut Peninsula's first European settler: a reclusive reverend who built a house at what is today the intersection of Willow and Chestnut Street.
