The North Slope of Beacon Hill

Myrtle Street

The North Slope of Beacon Hill

Explore the narrow streets and alleyways of the North Slope of Beacon Hill. This colonial port district with an unsavory reputation evolved to become a significant force in the abolitionist movement, an important station on the Underground Railroad, and home to many immigrant families.

Unlike the historically more fashionable South Slope that has always defined the Hill's character, the steeper, less accessible North Slope began with a 19th-century free black population and an integrated working-class community that has evolved into today's gentrified sub-neighborhood.
