West Roxbury

Boston Real Estate for Sale 2021


Founded in 1630, West Roxbury was originally part of the town of Roxbury and was mainly used as farmland. West Roxbury formed its own government in 1851 and was annexed by Boston in 1874. The neighborhood was home to an experimental utopian community, which attracted notable writers like Emerson, Hawthorne, and Thoreau. Like its neighboring communities, West Roxbury’s residential development grew with the construction of the West Roxbury branch of the Boston and Providence Railroad; the area grew further with the development of electric streetcars.

West Roxbury, bordered by Roslindale and Hyde Park, is truly a suburban neighborhood, with its tree-lined streets and single family homes give it a suburban feel in an urban setting. West Roxbury’s main thoroughfare is Centre Street, lined with local restaurants and commercial establishments.
