Boston By Foot Meetup Group Message Board › New Meetup: The Flat of Beacon Hill
Announcing a new Meetup for Boston By Foot Meetup Group!
What: The Flat of Beacon Hill
When: Sunday, September 26, 2010 2:00 PM
Price: $15.00 ($5 for BBF card holders)
Where: Charles/MGH T stop
490 Cambridge St
Boston, MA 02114
Come along and explore one of Boston's least known and most delightful neighborhoods. The Flat of Beacon Hill is built on 19th century made-land between Charles Street and the Charles River. The Flat is geologically part of Back Bay and culturally part of Beacon Hill, with the architecture of both.
This intimate patch of real estate soon acquired carriage houses and horse stables owned by the wealthy families living on Beacon Hill. Today, many of these edifices have been converted into charming residences and seamlessly blend among the notable landmarks such as the Charles Street Meeting House, the Church of the Advent, and the Sunflower Castle.
What do Sam Mayday Malone, a private-eye named Spenser, a Fox Terrier named Igloo, and seven strangers living in an old firehouse have in common? They all know the Flat is where it's at!
Tour costs $15 per person ($5 for Boston By Foot card holders). The tour leaves at 2pm from outside the entrance of the Charles/MGH T station on the Red Line.
