Brookline MA Historic Homes

To be considered "historic," a property must have three essential attributes: sufficient age, a relatively high degree of physical integrity, and historical significance.

Age: A property must be "old enough" to be considered historic. Generally speaking, this means that a property must be at least 50 years old, although this is just a general rule of thumb. 

Integrity: In addition to having sufficient age, a property must retain its historic physical integrity. For a building, structure, landscape feature, historic site, or historic district, this means that the property must be relatively unchanged. Its essential character-defining features relative to its significance must still be present. For a traditional cultural property, integrity means that the site must be recognizable to today's affiliated cultural group, evidenced through tradition, and still used or revered in some way.

Significance: Finally, and most importantly, a property must be significant to be considered historic. 

  • direct association with individuals, events, activities, or developments that shaped our history or that reflect important aspects of our history
  • embodying the distinctive physical and spatial characteristics of an architectural style or type of building, structure, landscape, or planned environment, or a method of construction, or by embodying high artistic values or fine craftsmanship
  • having the potential to yield information important to our understanding of the past through archaeological, architectural, or other physical investigation and analysis.
