Episode 7: The Iconic Homes of Beacon Hill
Welcome to Historic Boston: Beacon Hill, a walking tour of one of Boston’s best known but least explored neighborhoods. In episode 7, we will discuss the development of Beacon Hill following the construction of the new State House. We will talk about the three distinct phases of development of this neighborhood, including the architectural impact each had on the Beacon Hill we see today. The key sites we will see in this episode include: Acorn Street, Louisburg Square, the Charles Bulfinch house, two of Harrison Gray Otis's freestanding mansions, the Swan stables, the Nichols House Museum, the Somerset Club, and more.
