A Fascinating History

Brookline was originally settled as its own town in 1638. While it was closely linked with an Algonquin tribe, it also was a bustling village that was distinctly separate from Boston from its incorporation in 1705 until it merged with Boston in 1874. The community largely resisted being linked politically with Boston for much of its early history. Notably, the idea of allowing women the right to vote became popular here very early in history, giving Brookline the reputation for being rather forward-thinking. The community was also among the first in area to benefit from steam engine railways and elevated railways. This created an ambiance of mobility, and it fostered commerce and trade. It is important to note that the area has always been known for its beautiful ambiance that beautifully combines natural landscaping with historic architecture.
