Black Heritage Trail

The trail connects points of historical significance to the history of blacks in Boston, from the African Meeting House (home of the oldest still existing black church in America) to the St. Gaudens frieze commemorating the 54th Massachusetts - the first all-black regiment to fight for the Union in the Civil War.

The trail winds through Beacon Hill and Boston Common. Allow two hours to walk the entire trail.

It is very nice to have some places to learn more about our black fellows.
