CHESTNUT HILL
THE SHOPPING VILLAGE
Welcome to Chestnut Hill, Newton.
The village of Chestnut Hill is located in the city of Newton, just six miles west of downtown Boston. Most of Chestnut Hill was just farmland all the way into the 20th century, but the area around the reservoir was developed in 1870 by the famous landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted. Olmsted was responsible for the design of Central Park in New York City, as well as the Emerald Necklace in Boston and Brookline. Thanks to the significant landscaping and architecture, part of Chestnut Hill has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places. You'll see plenty of beautiful buildings in the style of Colonial Italianate, Shingle, Tudor Revival and Victorian in the neighborhood's country estates and larger mansions. One of Chestnut Hill's most prominent features is the historic Boston College; a prime example of Collegiate Gothic architecture and one of the foremost institutions for higher learning in the nation. Residents in the village have access to plenty of retail, with locations like The Mall at Chestnut Hill and Chestnut Hill Square, as well as The Shops at Putterham and Cleveland Circle. These commercial centers serve both the direct neighborhood as well as surrounding villages, as many areas of Newton don't have their own shopping malls or much stores at all.
