Parking Near Boston College
Boston College is a private university that lies within the affluent village of Chestnut Hill in Newton, Mass. Founded in 1863, the university was the first Catholic Jesuit school in the Boston area, originally located in Boston's South End. It wouldn't be until 1909 that the main campus got moved to Chestnut Hill and designed in a gothic revival and beaux-arts architectural style. This made it one of the most strikingly beautiful sets of buildings in the area. In fact, the campus of this Jesuit research university has been classified as a historic landmark because of its unique collegiate gothic architecture.
The main campus, commonly referred to as "the Heights," is six miles west of Boston and includes 120 buildings overlooking the Chestnut Hill Reservoir. In addition to the main campus, you'll find the Newton campus a mile west and the Brighton Campus across Commonwealth Avenue. Within all of the campuses, you'll find eight libraries containing a vast collection of historic rare books, antiquities, manuscripts, government documents, and ancient pieces of art. Of the libraries, the Bapst Library features intricate stained-glass windows that definitely make it worthy of a visit.
