Hill Top, the historic Babcock House, was built in 1852.

The History

Designed in the Italianate Greek Revival style for Mr. and Mrs. George Babcock, Hill Top was one of the first houses on West Newton Hill following completion of the new Boston and Worcester Railroad, the country’s first commuter train. Previously a neighborhood of country houses for city dwellers and farms, the railroad’s West Newton stop and regular service allowed Mr. Babcock and his neighbors to commute to Boston.
