"District 5 is the epicenter of culture, education, business, entertainment and medicine." - Councilwoman Mary Sheffield

WE ARE BOSTON EDISON

The Boston-Edison Historic District consists of a 36-block area containing approximately 900 custom-designed houses — no two are alike. The district is bordered by Boston Boulevard on the North, Edison Avenue on the South, Woodward Avenue on the east and Linwood on the West. According to the Historic Boston-Edison Association, "The Historic District is a superb example of the progressive ideals of urban residential design during the early 20th century. Visual delight is provided by diversity of architectural styles counterbalanced by a sense of harmony achieved by uniformity of scale, roof line and set-back and by consistent use of stone or brick construction." Home styles include English Revival (Cottage, Tudor, Renaissance), Roman and Greek Revival, French Provincial, Colonial Revival (Georgian and Dutch), Italian Renaissance, Prairie and Vernacular.
