Mission Hill is a neighborhood of continuous transition, rebirth, and renewal. Part of the colonial town of Roxbury, originally written as ‘Rocksberry,’ due to the plentiful outcroppings of Roxbury Puddingstone found throughout the area. We will see remnants of those and of the quarries that took advantage of them. Over time new modes of transportation and new landfill projects brought more residents of diverse backgrounds to the area. By the mid-nineteenth century Mission Hill had taken its name from the “Mission Church” (the Basilica of our Lady of Perpetual Hope). We will explore the many wonderful public buildings of this fascinating enclave of Boston, along with some fragments of an industrial past. Now mainly a residential area, we will discover some interesting housing stock as we climb up to the top of the hill to finish the tour.
