Annexation

In 1912, Hyde Park became Boston's last annexed neighborhood. By the early 1900s, the population of Hyde Park had dramatically increased due to an influx of immigrants attracted to work opportunities in Hyde Park mills. The City of Boston wished to capitalize on the tax revenues from those mills. The act of annexation wasaccepted by the residents of the town of Hyde Park on November 7, 1911 and annexation to Boston took effect on January 1, 1912.
