Charlestown is Boston’s oldest neighborhood. Originally an independent city, Charlestown was annexed to Boston in 1874. Located just across the Charles River from the rest of Boston, Charlestown is bordered by Cambridge to the West, Boston Harbor to the East and the city of Everett to the north. The neighborhood is a mix of gas lit streets lined with historic red brick bowfront townhouses, luxury waterfront condos, modest wood-frame homes, and cozy little ‘worker cottages’.
Charlestown played a pivotal role in U.S. history. Along its hilly ridge, the Revolutionary Battle of Bunker Hill took place. For nearly 200 years it was home to the Charlestown Navy Yard and it still the berth of the U.S.S. Constitution, i.e. ‘Old Ironsides’, the world’s oldest commissioned warship. Today in Charlestown you can still enjoy a pint at historic Warren Tavern, which has continuously operated in the same location since 1780.
