For architecture buffs, the William Hickling Prescott House is a must-see. Built in 1808 and designed by Asher Benjamin, the house is one of a pair of twin houses that directly overlook the Boston Common. The Prescott House includes many features reminiscent of 19th century Boston, such as fluted Doric columns. The house also serves as a timeline of how homes in Beacon Hill have been redeveloped to meet changing needs.
