Geocache Description:

Situated in one of Boston's most sought-after neighborhoods, Louisburg Square is one of the most charming areas of Beacon Hill. The homes here were built in the 1840s and served as a model for townhouse development.

Several recognizable names have made their home in Louisburg Square over the years:

  • John Kerry, former Secretary of State
  • William Dean Howells, Atlantic Monthly editor
  • Charles Bulfinch, architect of the nearby State House
  • John Singleton Copley, famous American painter
  • Louisa May Alcott, author
  • Robert Frost, poet laureate

Louisburg Square is currently one of the most expensive residential neighborhoods in the country. A few weeks before placing this cache I ran into then-US Senator John Kerry in front of his residence. Would you like to live here too? Well, start saving now, because the average cost of a townhouse on the street exceeds $6 million and reaches as high as $20 million!

The park inside the fence is private property and is for Louisburg Square residents only, so do not trespass. This is also a very popular tourist area, so please use this hint to retrieve the cache without drawing attention to yourself: Read the sign and reach behind, under the top lip. PLEASE REPLACE CACHE AS FOUND, THANK YOU.
