dbo:abstract
  • Peacock Farm is a residential neighborhood located in Lexington, Massachusetts. This historic neighborhood was designed by architect Walter Pierce and built between 1952 and 1958 with the goal making modernist homes accessible to those with limited budgets. The 45-acre subdivision had formerly been a wetland where peacocks were raised and took its name from the previous identity of the site. Pierce said most traditional architects found the land undesirable for development: "Much of the land gradient was steep, and much of the site was underlaid with ledge. To our eyes, these were assets that could be worked with. The land formed a natural bowl, shielded from the north by the hill and sloping down to the south and southeast, nice attributes in this northern latitude." The neighborhood was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2012 as the Peacock Farm Historic District. (en)
