Forbes House Museum
The Forbes House Museum graces the summit of Milton Hill, commanding panoramic views of Boston's skyline, the Neponset River marshes, and the distant Boston Harbor. This historical site rests upon the ancestral territory of the Neponset band of the Indigenous Massachusett people, who nurtured this land until the early 1600s. In the late 1700s, the property became the residence of Thomas Hutchinson, the final royal governor of Massachusetts. An impressive beech tree adorns the front yard, speculated to have been planted by Governor Hutchinson himself as an integral part of his sprawling 95-acre estate.
