Located on Beacon Street at the head of park Street. The hill on which the State House stands was originally called Treamount, later this was changed to Sentry Hill when it was used as a look-out and after the erection of the Beacon in 1634 1635, it received the name of Beacon Hill. The cornerstone of the "Bulfinch" front was laid on July 4, 1795, and the extension was built in 1889 at a cost of four million dollars.
