Fisher Hill Reservoir Park Gatehouse project has been awarded a 2017 Massachusetts Historical Commission Preservation Award! We would like to thank the Town of Brookline, Klopfer Martin Design Group Landscape Architects, and our team of consultants who worked so diligently to bring this special historic structure back to life.
Located within the Fisher Hill Historic District and named to the National Register of Historic Places, the reservoir site and Gatehouse played a vital role in the development of important water supply public work projects throughout the late 19th century. This time period reflects Brookline’s central role in providing infrastructure for a rapidly expanding population. As a result, Brookline developed a legacy of water reserves and notable architectural gatehouse structures of the Richardsonian Romanesque style. Dating back to 1887, the Fisher Hill Reservoir and supporting Gatehouse represent these very qualities of architecture, landscape design and civic planning that are a part of the Town’s historic identity.
