About the Black Heritage Trail:


The Black Heritage Trail® is a 1.6 mile walk through the heart of Boston's Beacon Hill neighborhood. The trail showcases residences and community buildings associated with a Black community that thrived on, and near, the north slope of Beacon Hill before, during, and after the American Civil War. Throughout that time, this community struggled and organized for equal rights and access to equal education. Community members championed the movement to abolish slavery and even housed freedom seekers on their journey along the Underground Railroad.


Most sites along the trail remain private residences. However, the final stops—the Abiel Smith School and the African Meeting House—are part of the Museum of African American History which is open to the public.


Stops include:


* Robert Gould Shaw and Massachusetts 54th Regiment Memorial
* George Middleton House
* Phillips School
* John J. Smith House
* Charles Street Meeting House
* Lewis Harriet Hayden House
* John Coburn House
* Smith Court Residences
* Abiel Smith School
* African Meeting House


You can explore the trail virtually as well.
