Monument Square

Monument Square is a residential neighborhood in Charlestown steeped in history and architectural charm. The community is built around a park housing the iconic Bunker Hill Monument at the top of Breed’s Hill.

The area is notable as the site of the 1775 Battle of Bunker Hill early in the American Revolutionary War. Monument Square was formally laid out in the 19th century when the Bunker Hill Monument, a 221-foot tall granite obelisk was erected. The monument is one of Boston’s most recognizable landmarks, offering sweeping views of the city and Boston Harbor.

Residential properties built in the mid-19th century are sprinkled around the park, comprising the bulk of Monument Square’s housing stock. The homes reflect the classic Federal, Greek Revival, and Victorian architectural styles of the era. Brick and clapboard facades, ornate moldings and period details such as wrought-iron fences and cobblestone pathways, add to the area’s timeless appeal.

The well-preserved homes flanked by tree-lined streets blend historic significance with modern comfort. While the interiors feature original hardwood floors, fireplaces, and high ceilings, the kitchens and bathrooms have been updated with contemporary fixtures and aesthetics with living spaces that cater to today’s lifestyles.

Monument Square is known for its well-kept gardens, parks, and easy access to recreational facilities. The Bunker Hill Monument and surrounding park serve as a central gathering point for many residents. Monument Square is roughly bounded by Bunker Hill Street to the north, Warren Street to the south, Main Street to the east, and Monument Avenue to the west. The Community College MBTA stop on the Orange line is a short walk from Monument Square, providing easy commutes to the wider Boston area. The neighborhood is also severe by several bus routes, including the 92 and 93 for added connectivity to other parts of the city.
