Historic Newton Walks: Chestnut Hill
Four Centuries on Chestnut Hill
Originally settled by the Hammond family in 1655, the Newton portion of Chestnut Hill has flourished over four centuries. With the introduction of railways in the 1850s, previously remote and undeveloped, the area grew rapidly. In the 1900s, Chestnut Hill changed dramatically as farmland was divided for estates and Boston College broke ground. Join resident Amy Grier look at this corner of Newton.
