Building History

With the construction of the Boston and Worcester Railroad in the 1830s, West Newton had a direct link to downtown Boston. This precipitated rapid development in the area and the population grew. Nearby West Newton Hill and the surrounding area saw the construction of new homes, many owned by wealthy business people working in Boston, who now had a means to commute.
