Historic Boston: Beacon Hill

Oct 28 2021 • 3 mins

Welcome to Historic Boston: Beacon Hill, a walking tour of one of Boston’s best known but least explored neighborhoods. In episode 6, we will explore the impact women had on Beacon Hill, from the first Black public school teacher, to a famous 19th century writer, to the woman who led the transformation of this neighborhood in the late 18th and early 19th century. While the story of women is interspersed across all our episodes, we will visit these key sites: the Elizabeth Peabody kindergarten, the Phillips School, and the Susan Paul house.
