The Boston African American National Historic Site, in Boston's Beacon Hill neighborhood, interprets 15 pre-Civil War structures relating to the history of Boston's 19th-century African-American community. These include the 1806 African Meeting House, the oldest standing black church in the United States. The site also includes the Abiel Smith School, originally built in 1834, which is now operated as the Museum of African American History; and the Robert Gould Shaw / 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Regiment Memorial.
