Prospect Hill History

Dedicated in 1903, the Prospect Hill Memorial Flag Tower was built to commemorate the site’s military importance during both the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. Before pieces of the hill were leveled off and take to fill in parts of present-day Union Square, the Prospect Hill tower served as a strategic post because of its commanding view of Boston and the harbor. The fort ultimately became the site of the strongest fortification in the colonists’ frontline. The hill would later serve as a prisoner of war camp for captured British soldiers. After the Civil War began in 1861, the area was used as a training camp and recruitment center. The surrounding neighborhood was renamed “Union Square” to acknowledge support of the Union.
