John Eliot Square, Roxbury
The Dillaway-Thomas House at Roxbury Heritage
State Park was built in 1750 and served as headquarters for General
John Thomas and the Continental Army during the siege of Boston
in 1775. The house has been restored to show how it changed over
two centuries and now offers exhibits which interpret both the past
and present history of Roxbury and its people and cultures. A new
park adjacent to the Dillaway-Thomas House provides a scenic overlook
of downtown Boston.
From Downtown Boston take Washington St. toward
Dudley Square, right onto Roxbury St.
