Mission Hill is a quaint little neighborhood of Boston that overlooks the city from its western side.
Once filled with farms and most of the breweries in Boston, Mission Hill today is an architectural landmark district with a combination of freestanding houses built by early wealthy landowners, blocks of traditional brick rowhouses, and many three deckers. Many families and some students and staff from the nearby Longwood Medical Area come to Mission Hill for the affordable rents. A diverse community in proximity to downtown, Mission Hill offers its residents an excellent view of the city from a historic neighborhood.
Mission Hill is served by the Roxbury Crossing station on MBTA's Orange Line, as well as the Brigham Circle, Fenwood, Mission Park, Riverway, Back of the Hill and Heath Street stops on the Green Line.
The neighborhood is served by MBTA Bus Route 39 running from Forest Hills in Jamaica Plain to Copley Square and Route 66 running from Dudley Square in Roxbury, through Brookline to Harvard Square in Cambridge. The Urban Ring crosstown route passes through the far eastern corner of the neighborhood along Longwood Avenue and Huntington Avenue.
