The Blackstone Block is a fragment of Boston's original settlement, its boundaries and street pattern still intact after 300 years.
The town's first houses and public buildings were nestled within sight of the inner harbor. The streets and squares which define the Blackstone Block date from the 17th century. Union, Hanover, and North (Ann) Streets were among the first streets to be laid out in Boston.
This architecturally cohesive group of brick buildings represents nearly three hundred years of Boston's development. It continues today as an active part of city life. Within the Blackstone Block, the original 17th century street pattern still serves as alleys and walkways.
