Item Information

Title:
Map of Boston and suburbs
Description:
Established as a town in 1630, Dorchester remained a rural community until the 1870s and 1880s. In the early 1900s the street layout and names of communities became part of the neighborhood’s urban fabric as shown in this section of a map of Boston from 1913. At that time, Dorchester’s two most prevalent immigrant groups were Irish and Anglo-Canadians.
