The Beacon Hill Civic Association (BHCA) was established in 1922 by a small, but concerned group of neighbors whose goal was to protect Beacon Hill’s historic residential character. Today, the BHCA continues as a volunteer organization that helps preserve and enhance the quality of life on Beacon Hill, a historic, urban, residential neighborhood in downtown Boston. As an organization, the BHCA acts as an advocate for Beacon Hill residents and facilitates the flow of information on a timely basis.
The BHCA maintains its focus on the founders’ original concerns - zoning, licensing, traffic, parking, and neighborhood cleanliness. Monitoring citywide developments that impact the neighborhood and planning community-building events, both social and informational, are among the organization’s major activities.
