What makes this tour special

Explore the 2-mile walking Black Heritage Trail on Beacon Hill, where your private guide will take you through some of the histories of the community who lived on the north slope. On your private tour, you will:

Your private walking tour uncovers one of the many layers of Boston’s rich history, taking you through more than a century’s worth of the African American community’s history in the city. However, the story of African-Americans in Boston centres around a larger story in America – the fight for liberty, freedom from tyranny, freedom from enslavement, independence, and equal protection under the law. As the first state to not have any enslaved people, Massachusetts became a homing beacon for many seeking a life of equality and a community – the north slope of Boston’s Beacon Hill represented that opportunity for many. 

On your walking tour, you will have the chance to see many historic names and events come alive – from the bookshop where Uncle Tom’s Cabin was published to places where famed abolitionist Frederick Douglas spoke regularly. Your tour of the Black Heritage Trail will span from the site of the Boston Massacre in 1770 through to a restaurant where Malcolm X was a busboy in the 1940s. 

Your tour will end at the Museum of African American History and the African Meeting House, where your guide will readily assist you in securing tickets to further explore Boston’s Black history at your leisure.
