A walk through the streets of Beacon Hill in Boston is a serious walk through American history. Named after the signal beacon built in 1634 on the highest point to warn settlers of danger, the area was originally owned by Rev. William Blackstone, the first settler in Boston who built his house in 1625. With almost 400 years to recount, Beacon Hill is a chronicle of Colonial times, the beginnings of an emerging nation, and history to the present day.
