About Brookline:

Once part of Algonquian territory, Brookline was first settled by European colonists in the early 17th century. The area was an outlying part of the colonial settlement of Boston and known as the hamlet of Muddy River. In 1705, it was incorporated as the independent town of Brookline. The northern and southern borders of the town were marked by two small rivers or brooks, hence the name. The northern border with Brighton (which was itself part of Cambridge until 1807) was Smelt Brook. (That name appears on maps starting at least as early as 1852, but sometime between 1888 and 1925 the brook was covered over.[2]) The southern boundary, abutting Boston, was the Muddy River.

The Town of Brighton was merged with Boston in 1874, and the Boston-Brookline border was redrawn to connect the new Back Bay neighborhood with Allston-Brighton. This created a narrow strip of land along the Charles River belonging to Boston, cutting Brookline off from the shoreline. It also put certain lands north of the Muddy River on the Boston side, including what are now Kenmore Square and Packard’s Corner. The current northern border follows Commonwealth Avenue, and on the northeast, St. Mary’s Street. When the Emerald Necklace of parks and parkways was designed for Boston by Frederick Law Olmsted in the 1890s, the Muddy River was integrated into the Riverway and Olmsted Park, creating parkland accessible by both Boston and Brookline residents.

Throughout its history, Brookline has resisted being annexed by Boston, in particular during the Boston–Brookline annexation debate of 1873. The neighboring towns of West Roxbury and Hyde Park connected Brookline to the rest of Norfolk County until they were annexed by Boston in 1874 and 1912, respectively, putting them in Suffolk County. Brookline is now separated from the remainder of Norfolk County.

Brookline has long been regarded as a pleasant and verdant environment. In 1841 edition of the Theory and Practice of Landscape Gardening, Andrew Jackson Downing described the area this way:

Aspinwall Hill Beaconsfield Brookline Hills Brookline Village Buttonwood Village Brookline High School, Cleveland Circle Coolidge Corner Corey Farm Corey Hill Cottage Farm Fisher Hill ·  JFK Crossing Larz Anderson Park, up next to Moss Hill, part of Jamaica Plain, MA Longwood North Brookline Pill Hill (also known as “High Street Hill”) The Point (originally “Whiskey Point”) Putterham Circle (South Brookline)  Sobro Saint Mary The Heights Washington Square

Little Corner Schoolhouse Childcare Center Brookline Toddlers’ Art

Little Corner SchoolHouse Toddlers’ Class made their own reindeers using their handprints.

Materials: construction paper, brown, black and red paint,  paper plates, paint brush optional: googly eyes, red pom-pom, glitter, optional baby wipes (for cleaning)

Step 1: Pour a small amount of brown paint onto one paper plate. Remove the child’s shoe and sock and paint the bottom of their foot brown. Make sure you don’t you too much paint, a coating on their foot is enough.

Step 2: Assist the child with stepping on the paper to make the footprint.  This will make the reindeer’s face. Your child’s toes will be at the top to make the reindeer’s hair. Clean your child’s foot with baby wipes or soap and water.

Step 3: Pour a small amount of black paint on your child’s hands.  Have them rub their hands together so that both hand have a light coating of paint. Again, you want to make sure that you don’t use too much paint.

Step 4: Assist your child with placing their painted hands on top/side of their reindeer’s head.  This will make the antlers.  Clean your child’s hands with baby wipes or soap and water.

Step 5: Decorate your reindeer’s face.  Add googly eyes, red pom-pom or paint for nose to make Rudolph.
