The Great Wall of Wellesley

Hunnewell wall worker

The hardest working people in Wellesley? Those guys who painstakingly have been sprucing up the Great Wall of Wellesley along the Hunnewell properties on Washington Street/Rte. 16.

I stopped and pestered one of the stone masons the other day who said he’d been on the job for about two months. I couldn’t get the man, crouched down next to the wall with his tools and a few bags of cement, to estimate when the “Hunne-Wall” job would be done. It looks as though the entire wall stretches about a half mile.
