Lower Mills, located along the Neponset River, is a historic neighborhood bordering Milton and Dorchester, Massachusetts. As the former home to the Walter Baker Chocolate Company, the oldest producer of chocolate in the United States, Lower Mills is an important part of the American 18th and 19th century history. The area maintains its historic flavor with many of the original thoughtfully restored buildings remaining, including the factory's original smokestack and lots of beautiful exposed brick.


With easy access to the Neponset River Walkway and Bikeway, tempting local restaurants, cafes and shopping, residents can treat themselves to a thriving community, all steps away from the Red Line and highways for easy commuting.

It's no wonder that this is one of the most highly-sought after neighborhoods in Boston! Come and see for yourself what this hip and popular locale has to offer.
