Affectionately referred to as ""Dot"" by those who live here, Dorchester is a southern neighborhood of Boston with over 100,000 residents. Established in 1630 by English expatriates seeking religious freedom, the founders gave the settlement the same name as the town they left in Dorset. In 1765, chocolate became of extreme importance when it was imported to the colonies, and the first factory of its kind was opened in the city. By the mid-1800's, it had become an escape for Boston's wealthy. Then roughly 140 years ago, after city boundaries were blurred by growth in both Boston and Dorchester, the former annexed the latter. Now featuring varied culture and resurgence in the arts, there are many distinct neighborhoods and it is home to higher education, museums, historical monuments, and numerous parks.
