Chestnut Hill - Newton
In 1821 the Hammond family sold 165 acres, located partly in Newton and partly in Brookline, to an un-married retired sea-caption named Joseph Lee. Upon his death he left this “farmland” to his nieces and nephews whose interests were in Boston and who paid little attention to this remote and inaccessible property. And so it sat-until the 1850’s- when construction of Beacon Street and the Charles River Railroad made the land both accessible and attractive. They built their own home on the land and began development of a new community “Chestnut Hill”.
