History of Kelwyn Manor
Kelwyn Manor is one of Arlington’s most distinctive neighborhoods. Kelwyn Manor is sited on land that sits between Lake Street and Spy Pond in Arlington, Massachusetts.
Neighborhood development began in 1938 when the Kelly Coal Company began building the first of 194 houses on the 39 acre former Wyman farm. The name “Kelwyn” is a contraction of the two names: “Kelly” and “Wyman”. Houses in the development originally were priced between $6,000 and $8,000.
The Arlington Historical Commission, in minutes from a 2003 meeting, notes that “the unprecedented scale of this subdivision, and the nearly uniform use of period Colonial Revival style, make Kelwyn Manor unique in Arlington’s emergence as a suburban community.”
