It's two street east parallel to Charles Street. It has nice houses on either side of the square, and it's historically one of the most expensive ones in the country. If you are taking time to walk Beacon Hill don't overlook this part.

This place is so tranquil. You need to come her in the morning hours. Surrounded by period apartments. Definitely a must.

Robin Cook, John Kerry and others have called this area home. Watch where you walk because the tree roots break up the sidewalk. If you are familiar with some parts of Brooklyn, Philadelphia or Baltimore, you may get a sense of deja vu.

The colored glass is original. The brownstones are breath taking. Christmas time is the best time of year to stroll thru.

Wonderful photo ops, any time of year. The old brownstones, their stately presence and the old cobblestone street is like a trip back in time.

Louisburg Square is a glimpse of Old Boston, now a place for the rich to live. It's an interesting stop as part of a walk through Beacon Hill.
