"Best part of Somerville!"

Historic as the first place the American flag ever flew, Prospect Hill has been many things - a POW camp, a military training place and battle site. Somehow, even with a couple of hundred years of changes, it has somehow managed to maintain a peacefulness that came when farming began there.

Today, Prospect Hill's Union Square is indicative of the changing demographics. Once all working class families, you'll find more street life but with sort of a posh twist to it. It's ethnic, has loads of bars and restaurants, and is convenient for bordering on Cambridge. Stop in the sqaure and look up at the old monument ...it's pretty awe inspiring.
