More About Neighborhood Nine Real Estate

 Neighborhood Nine Location

 Neighborhood Nine technically comprises three neighborhoods — Harvard Square to Linnaean Street; Avon Hill; and the former railroad/industrial section of town along Walden Street.The area is bounded by Concord Avenue to the south; Massachusetts Avenue to the east; Porter Square to the northeast and the railroad tracks on the north. The Avon Hill sub-neighborhood consists of the higher elevations within the area bounded by Upland Road, Raymond Street, Linnaean Street and Massachusetts Avenue. Porter Square on the Red Line is the closest MBTA stop.

Neighborhood Nine History

Neighborhood Nine encompasses a large section of the original Cambridge community founded in 1631 as “Newtowne” and centered on what is now Harvard Square. The settlement was chosen as capital of the Massachusetts Bay Colony because of its rich farm land and comparative safety from assault at sea. Although agriculture was dominant in the area for many years, the establishment of Harvard College changed the neighborhood’s character, moving it from an agrarian society to one that served as an employer and magnet for students and educators. Today, Neighborhood Nine is Cambridge’s most populous neighborhood.
