Settled in 1630 by accident and against the orders of John Winthrop, future governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, Dorchester grew into a mature town onto itself with its own history, and fought annexation to Boston desperately.  Once annexed to Boston, the community became prime real estate for those wishing to escape the crowded downtown streets.  Farms sprang up.  Mills dotted the Neponset river.  There was even a small fleet of whaling ships based at Commercial Point. Today, this neighborhood of Boston is rich in cultural diversity, and boasts many city institutions.  The map is finished in a warm rust brown color and is upright, 24"X36" unlike many other prints in the collection, as Dorchester runs North to South.
