College Heights is located between Wellesley Square and the Fells and is bounded by Linden Street and Weston Road. Its development began in the 1870s and 1880s following the opening in 1875 of nearby Wellesley College. Over the ensuing decades, many of the residences in this neighborhood were constructed for members of the College community. The remaining lots were mostly developed in the 1920s and 1930s. This neighborhood offers convenient access to the Wellesley Square and Linden Square shopping districts, as well as to the Wellesley MBTA station.
