Description

Ken Liss, president of the Brookline Historical Society, will lead a walking tour of the historic Brookline Village neighborhood centered on Washington and Harvard Streets north of Route 9. Highlights will include:

  • Brookline’s earliest commercial center, featuring brick buildings from the 1870s
  • The Lindens, one of the first planned residential developments in town (1840s)
  • Emerson Garden and the Elijah Emerson House on Davis Avenue (1846)
  • White Place, with one of the largest concentrations of vernacular architecture in Brookline
  • The town’s civic center, site of the Town Hall, the public library, the Pierce School, and other municipal buildings.

Three views of Brookline Village

The tour will begin and end at The Village Works, 202 Washington Street, in a 19th century building that began as the shop of a local house painter and has been a fish market, a hardware store, and a series of restaurants (including The Village Coach House and Davios).

Space may be limited. Reserve now and be sure to indicate how many in your group will attend.
