Boston’s Jamaica Plain was originally settled in the early 1600s as a part of the Roxbury neighborhood. The town did not receive its namesake as an independent town until the late 1800s. Jamaica Plain was known for its green spaces and bodies of water including ponds, brooks and marshes. Their Community farms became a popular place for much of the Boston population to purchase local crops. There was plenty of land for people to settle and build new houses. By the late 1800s, Jamaica Plain was filled less with farmers and more with professionals who wanted a suburb of Boston to call home. Over time the growth of the neighborhood continued and helped form a great community that holds a unique charm.
Mission Hill is a fantastic neighborhood, characterized by some steep streets with great views and diverse architecture. Traditional triple decker homes are found throughout, with beautiful brownstones tucked away in the more residential streets. Renovated and new construction units abound, making this unique area one of the best bang for your buck neighborhoods in the city. Bordered by Jamaica Plain, Roxbury, Brookline, and Fenway/ Kenmore, Mission Hill allows its residents a short commute to virtually anywhere in Boston, particularly since the Orange Line (Roxbury Crossing Station) and the Green Line E Line (multiple stops, including Brigham Circle) are in close proximity. Parks and Green spaces are easily accessible throughout “the Hill” for residents to enjoy, a welcome feature for city living!
