Francis Fenwood District

Francis Street, Fenwood Road, and St. Albans Road

The Francis Street–Fenwood Road Historic District is a residential streetcar suburb, an extraordinarily well-preserved example of high-quality, middle-class, streetcar-suburb housing in Boston, constructed at the turn of the 20th century with the extension of the streetcar line (now the MBTA E Line). Historically, it represents an important period in the evolution of Boston, when the area was transformed from marshland into a premiere public park and new developable land, coinciding with a period of very rapid population and economic growth in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
