By an act passed April 25, 1850, Ibid., IX. 218. Sidney Willard, Edmund T. Hastings, Columbus Tyler, David R. Griggs, and their associates were empowered to erect a pile bridge over the Charles River between the city of Cambridge and the town of Brookline, from points at or near the old wharf or embankment, which is near where the Boston and Worcester Railroad passes under a bridge on the Western Avenue (so called) to the opposite bank of the river in Cambridge, and to receive certain rates of toll for the term of fifty years.

A very old apple tree on the easterly side of the street, the one shown in the frontispiece, which was made from a picture taken in war-time, is still cared for by a member of the Rand family. Benjamin Rand set out the row of maples next to the street, on the parsonage lawn, some time between 1850 and 1860. Columbus Tyler afterwards set out many others of different varieties on this place. Rev. Augustus R. Pope began the good work of planting trees on the estate on the corner of Summer and Central streets, now owned by Henry Baker, about 1850. When it passed into the hands of Nathan Tufts, about 1860, there were many varieties, forty, between the gate and the front door. These were thinned out in after years, and others were planted in various parts of the grounds by Mr. Tufts. The horse-chestnut in
