Hawthorne Hill was built on George Hill in 1904 as a country estate for the Bayard Thayer family. This ambitious undertaking combined some of the finest Boston talent of the day. Architect Guy Lowell worked with landscape architect and brother-in-law Robson Sargent on the placement of the house and gardens. (Robson's father was renowned Charles S. Sargent of the Arnold Arboretum.) Later, landscape architects Arthur Little and Herbert Browne did alterations on the gardens, and Ogden Codman (a nephew of John Hubbard Sturgis) did the estate's interior design. Since then, the property has had several owners. In 1953, the estate was a Catholic retreat house known locally as the Cenacle. Most recently, it was the Maharishi Ayurveda Health Center, which was established in 1986 by Dr. Deepak Chopra.
