Although many people associate Beacon Hill with stately townhouses owned by wealthy Bostonians, there’s another side to the Hill. Explore the narrow streets and alleyways of the North Slope of Beacon Hill with Boston By Foot and Historic New England. Learn how this colonial port district evolved from its once unsavory reputation to become a significant force in the abolitionist movement and home to various immigrant groups and institutions throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The tour includes a visit to the Vilna Shul, a synagogue built in 1919 to be the home of a congregation of Jewish Lithuanian immigrants, which now serves as a Jewish cultural center.
