Louisburg Square. A private square in Beacon Hill, Boston, Massachusetts. Named for the 1745 Battle of Louisbourg, in which Massachusetts militiamen led by William Pepperrell, sacked the French fortress located on the site. The Greek Revival houses around the square reflect the rarefied privilege enjoyed by the 19th century upper class here. Teacher A. Bronson Alcott + his daughter, author Louisa May Alcott, lived here in the 19th Century. (Seen here in the 1930's)

Louisburg Square is a private square that is maintained by the Louisburg Square Proprietors. While the Proprietors pay taxes to the City of Boston, the city does not own the square or its garden.
