More About Avon Hill Real Estate

 Avon Hill Location

The Avon Hill area is broadly defined by Massachusetts Avenue to the north; Raymond Street to the south; Linnaean Street to the east; and Upland Road to the west. Avon Hill is served by the Porter Square Red Line on the MBTA with commuter line access into Boston’s North Station; Brandeis University in Waltham or Concord, west of the city. Avon Hill is also conveniently located near I-90 (Mass Pike) for commutes out of the city to the western suburbs.

Avon Hill History

Avon Hill was originally known as Jones Hill and a thriving agrarian district in the mid-1800s. Two prominent local businessmen developed the five acres at the top of the hill, some eighty feet in elevation, building elegant Second Empire homes on Washington Street. While one burned in a fire, the other survives to this day. The area was further built out with additional architecturally significant homes on spacious lots in the 1890s, mainly for the owners of local businesses. The name Avon Hill is something of a mystery but historians believe that as the neighborhood continued to develop, Avon Street was extended up to Jones Hill and the area rechristened Avon Hill Street and later shortened to Avon Hill.
