Fox Hill, now leveled, was once a prominent feature of Boston Common. The hill was fortified by the British when the Continentals besieged Boston at the start of the Revolutionary War. The site is particularly remembered as the departure point for British troops when they crossed the Charles River on April 18, 1775 and proceeded to Lexington and Concord, the first military engagements of the Revolutionary War. The bronze Fox Hill Plaque commemorates these events and was placed by the City of Boston in 1925.
