In the summer of 1614, Captain John Smith entered Boston Harbor and landed a boat with eight men on the Dorchester shore (today known as South Boston). Dorchester Avenue is the major neighborhood spine, running in a south-north line through all of Dorchester, the southern part of which is primarily a residential area, with established neighborhoods still defined by parishes and occupied by families for generations.

Ashmont Hill, Jones Hill, Savin Hill and Fields Corner have recently gentrified in an answer to the high real estate prices in neighborhoods such as Back Bay and the South End. As a whole, however, Dorchester is still a diverse working class community with many European Americans, African Americans, Caribbean Americans, Latinos, and Asian Americans, and is still a center of Irish American immigration. This combination of the new, old, near and far is what gives Boston’s largest and most populous neighborhood a wealth of personality in every facet.
