About the Area
Prominently located in the geographical center of Weston, the Maple Road / Wellesley Street Area is a cohesive neighborhood of small and medium size 19th and early 20th century frame houses. This is one of the few areas in Weston where houses are clustered to create a “village” atmosphere (see also Boston Post Road Historic District and the North Avenue Area B).
The neighborhood is surrounded by open land on almost all sides, including town land and playing fields north of Maple Road, school grounds with playing fields on the west side of School Street, the town-owned Case Park and former Case Estates field to the south (see Case Estates Area E), and the privately-owned Weston Golf Club course to the east. The houses at 84 and 86 Wellesley Street, which can be considered both visually and historically to be part of both the Case Estate Area and the Maple Road / Wellesley Street Area, have been included in the Case Estates Area.
