Beachmont
Corner of Bennington Street and Winthrop Avenue

Beachmont is a community within Revere, Massachusetts. This Boston area neighborhood is diverse with some turn-of-the-century homes overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Belle Isle Marsh Reservation. East Boston and Winthrop border Beachmont on the South.

History

In the 1930s, Short Beach was the central community area for swimming, with Love Rock used for diving when the tide was right. Short Beach also was then the mooring site for one of or more lobster fishermen's boats. Clams and mussels were available in abundance, but while the clams were often dug, the mussels went unharvested. The shore of Short Beach, like others in Revere, was patrolled by soldiers at night during World War II. The gun emplacements on the Winthrop shore were nearby and Revere's beaches were seen as a possible landing place for enemy invaders.[]

The Belle Isle Marsh Reservation is adjacent to the Beachmont School and runs to Short Beach. Guided walks show off the local wildlife of Boston's last remaining salt marsh. The Beachmont Yacht Club docks boats on the marsh's main creek. Across the MBTA's Blue Line, Suffolk Downs straddles East Boston and Beachmont.[]

Transit

Before the subway came to Beachmont, it was served by the narrow-gauge railroad, with access to Revere Beach available via trolley cars. Beachmont has access to just about all major modes of transportation.[]

Beachmont Station on the MBTA's Blue Line connects Beachmont to Boston, Massachusetts on the inbound track and Revere Beach on the outbound track. The T also runs the 119 bus through the neighborhood and the other parts of Revere.[]
