Located in the northwest corner of Wellesley, the Fells was one of the last large-scale areas of the town to be developed into residential neighborhoods. Up through the 1920s, this section of Wellesley remained almost entirely farmland. That, however, changed as the establishment of Wellesley as a commuters’ suburb required the need for more housing. The homes originally constructed in the Fells were mostly smaller Colonials, Capes, and Bungalows. Many of these houses have since been replaced by expansive new construction. The Fells offers numerous recreational opportunities given its proximity to Boulder Brook Reservation and Morses Pond.
