This Old House - Week One / by Dave Hileman

Day four of our old house tour brings us to this home in Boston on Beacon Hill. It is now a part of the Boston African American NHS. This home is privately owned but the exterior has been restored. It is directly across the street from the African Church that was the center of Black culture and ground zero for abolitionists. The home is not representative of African American culture of the first half of the 1800’s for many in this area. But it was a part of the heritage that there were at this time very successful men and women of color that we sadly know little about.
