Buttonwood Village History
Buttonwood Village has little written history but members of the Brookline Historical Society believe its distinctive name came from the prominent buttons visible on the coats of the firemen and policemen who made their home there during the 19th century. The area is also home to the historic Fernwood estate home on Clyde Street. Built in 1909, it is considered a distinctive example of Jacobethan architecture and one of the few surviving country estates of the early 20th century in Brookline.
