Brookline Animal Hospital, located near Mason, NH, was founded in June 2012 by Margaret Monachelli, D.V.M. The practice was opened in the Monachelli’s (circa 1834) colonial house as a “home business”. The front door of the practice is the front door to the home. The waiting room is the home’s original parlor. The reception area was the home’s dining room. An addition was built onto the house in 2012 to accommodate a treatment room, kennel, surgery and radiology. In 2016, a second addition was added onto the first to allow us to continue to meet the demands of our growing client base.
While much of the hospital is housed in a new and modern building, located near Mason, NH, clients feel the warmth and comfort of coming into our “home” when they enter Brookline Animal Hospital. You, our clients, are part of the Brookline Animal Hospital family and we are here to help with all your 4-legged family member’s needs.
Mason is a town in Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, United States. The population was 1,382 at the 2010 census. Mason, together with Wilton, is home to Russell-Abbott State Forest. Mason was first known as Number One, the first in a line of border towns including area allotted to the Province of New Hampshire after its border with neighboring Massachusetts was fixed in 1739. The town’s charter was granted in 1749 by Colonial Governor Benning Wentworth, and in 1768 his nephew, Governor John Wentworth, named it in honor of New Hampshire’s founder, Captain John Mason. Captain Mason was the holder of patent with title to the land that became New Hampshire. Greenville was set off from Mason in 1872.
Near the town’s center is the boyhood home of Samuel Wilson, the meat-supplier who is believed to have inspired the Uncle Sam character. The private house is today identified by a state historical marker. Another prominent local figure was Elizabeth Orton Jones, an author, illustrator and teacher better known as “Twig.” Jones is noted for her recording of town history and her dedication to Andy’s Summer Playhouse, a renowned youth theater founded in Mason. Pickity Place, a local cottage built in 1759 by Ebenezer Blood, was the model for the grandmother’s house in Jones’ 1948 illustrated version of Little Red Riding Hood. Pickity Place was created by David and Judith Walter. It was also the home of Ron Harry, Boston Garden organist from 1983–1995 and for the Boston Celtics in the TD Banknorth Garden until his death in 2004.
