In the 1940s, Oak Hill Park used to be a largely rural community home to several large farms and estates. Development of the area coincided with housing expansion in several areas of Newton after WWII. Most of the streets in the new planned neighborhood were named after veterans who died in the war. Undeveloped public land was used to build affordable housing for returning veterans in 1948. This includes the 128 acres of land owned by the old Estes and the Wiswall farms, plus a deserted gravel pit. On May 15, 1948, the city started building the 315 homes that were sold to returning GI’s and their families.
