Eagle Hill

Boston is full of history, including the historic East Boston neighborhood of Eagle Hill. While the area for years has flown somewhat under the radar, East Boston is certainly regarded as an emerging neighborhood today.  The mostly residential neighborhood of Eagle Hill sits on the northwest corner of East Boston, just across the harbor from Charlestown. It’s easy enough to spot, with its Victorian-style homes and its hilly terrain.  Read more about Eagle Hill.

More About Eagle Hill

Eagle Hill History

It also boasts its own impressive history. Because of East Boston’s large waterfront, the area of Eagle Hill played a large part in New England’s shipbuilding industry.  It’s said some of the world’s fastest clipper ships were once built in East Boston. Several parks in the area have murals and plaques that commemorate its maritime history.

Shipyards that sprung up during the California Gold Rush attracted skilled workers, which quicky led to a housing boom in Eagle Hill between the mid to late 1800s. A portion of Eagle Hill near the top of the hill is now a designated historic district on the National Register of Historic Places.

The streets of Eagle Hill also have some history. Laid out in a grid, the north/south streets are named for Revolutionary War generals, while the east/west streets are named to honor Revolutionary War battles. While you won’t see anything else to commemorate the fact in Eagle Hill, it just so happens the second battle of the Revolutionary War was fought in the area we now call Eagle Hill.

Eagle Hill Housing 

Originally envisioned as a high-end suburb, some of the largest homes of Eagle Hill still stand today. You’ll find a number of late 19th century homes in the neighborhood, and demand for them is only growing.  Many of the homes look much like they did generations ago and have been lovingly restored. Some of the old brick row houses at the bottom of the hill date back to the 1860s.
