Historic Beacon Hill, along with the Back Bay, is one of Bostonâ€™s most expensive neighborhoods, and is regarded as one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the country. Home to around 10,000 residents, it is known for its Federal-style row houses, gas-lit streets, and brick sidewalks. Notables such as Senator John Kerry, Michael Crichton, Uma Thurman, and Jack Welch have homes in the area.
Few people know that Beacon Hill was once a stop on the Underground Railroad, though many people do know that the bar made famous in the hit TV show Cheers is just down the hill from the State House. Beacon Hill is located just North of the Boston Common and the Boston Public Garden, and is bounded generally by Beacon Street on the south, Somerset Street on the east, Cambridge Street to the north, and Storrow Drive along the Charles River Esplanade to the west. It is home to the Massachusetts State House, situated at the top of the hill, and was designated a National Historic Landmark back in 1962. Charles Street, the neighborhood's main thoroughfare, is lined with antique shops and restaurants.
