Church Square was constructed in classical architecture in the early 1920s by Charles E. Holman. Remaining in family ownership ever since, the property has always contained the highest-quality specialty stores and restaurants in Wellesley.
A notable feature of Church Square is the great longevity of its tenants.
The original store in the block was E. A. Davis, started and run by Charles Holman’s sister-in-law, Emma Davis. It was located in Church Square in 1922, when the block opened. In 1975, the store was purchased by the Skolnick family, who still own and operate it today. EA Davis continues to run very successfully today in the same location, over 100 years after its inception.
