209 Newton St.
Located at the northwest corner with Clyde St., the house is still standing. Known as the Isaac Child House, it is one of the oldest remaining houses in Brookline and of considerable historic interest. The precise age of the house remains unclear. The land upon which it stands was first deeded in 1639, a house was constructed in the present location in the 1740s, and a first floor was added under the original house in 1875. It is not clear from the records whether the current house is based on the original house or if that house was torn down and replaced circa 1800.
