Alden Castle

Let’s talk about Brookline history for a moment. We at Kingston REM are suckers for that sort of thing. With all the new construction going up (quickly) it’s easy to forget the classic elegance that Brookline offers. Arguably, the crown jewel of Brookline’s quintessential beauty is the event venue, Alden Castle.
