A neighborhood steeped in American naval history, Admirals Hill prides itself on its cultural and historical relevancy. The neighborhood grew to be a naval center in the early 1800s and contains the Naval Hospital Boston Historic District, which the U.S. Government added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.

With the closing of the naval hospital, Admirals Hill completed its conversion from a center of naval officer treatment to a residential community with an emphasis on history.
