The northern end of Summer Street, between house nos. 11 and 51, is an area that conveys a distinctive “sense of place” despite a wide diversity of house styles ranging in age from 1860 to 1963. It is, perhaps, the historical connections, as explained in the Historical Narrative, which contributes to some sense of cohesiveness along the approximately 1,200 feet of street frontage represented in this area form.
This part of Summer Street is directly adjacent to the Boston Post Road National Register Historical District.

The northern end of Summer Street, from house nos. 11 to 51, is of historical interest as an example of how Weston developed from rural agricultural town to suburb in the early decades of the 20th century.
