Winthrop Square

Winthrop Street

This historic park contains the Bunker Hill Tablets, which cites the names of Irish-born soldiers who fought against the British at the Battle of Bunker Hill in 1775. Among the names are Colonel John Stark and Major Andrew McClary.

Also in the Square is the Charlestown Civil War Memorial by Sligo-born Martin Milmore, dedicated in 1872.

Across the street from Winthrop Square is the former home of John Boyle O'Reilly, who lived at 34 Winthrop Street. His funeral mass in 1890 was held at St. Mary's Church at the corner of Winthrop and Warren Streets.
