More About Allston
Allston is a neighborhood in Suffolk county; it was an eastern section of Brighton. It is located in the city of Boston, Massachusetts. Allston was named after Washington Allston, an American painter, and poet nicknamed “The Father of American Romanticism,” he painted the landscape of the area and called it “Fields West of Boston.”
Washington Allston lived and worked across the Charles River. Allston is adjacent to the neighborhood of Brighton. The two are often joined together as Allston-Brighton. The community has never been a separate town to date but in 1847, the town of Brighton was appropriated by the city of Boston.
Allston formed part of Cambridge; it was known as Little Cambridge in the 1800s. Little Cambridge was a buoyant farming community with a cattle industry and home to wealthy merchants such as Nathaniel Cunningham and Benjamin Faneuil. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was a renowned poet and professor with several assets and properties in Allston.
In 1888, Boston’s first trolley routes started in Allston, and through the expansion of railroad and livestock operations, the neighborhood developed rapidly up until the 20th Century when livestock operations ended. The neighborhood of Allston borders Brighton, Brookline, and Fenway. The Charles River also borders Allston, and it is accessible through several bridges.
