The neighborhood known as East Lower Mills-Cedar Grove is a combined area extending from the eastern side of Dorchester Road out towards Pope John Paul II Park.

The People and Places of East Lower Mills

East Lower Mills (sometimes called Lower East Mills) is a section of historic properties through the West Lower Mills/Lower Mills area that is shared between Dorchester and Milton. Cedar Grove is also considered a section of East Lower Mills, as is a part of Milton Village. There are several buildings along the Neponset River, most of them with a characteristic red brick exterior that is complemented by the green foliage. 

The entire neighborhood of East Lower Mills is a piece of the Dorchester-Milton Lower Mills Industrial District that spans either side of the Neponset River. Aside from Cedar Grove’s parks and cemeteries, East Lower Mills has the factories that have been repurposed into residential, retail, and industrial use. Most of the buildings along the Neponset River were constructed between 1868 and 1947, and the whole area has been added to the National Register of Historic Places (first in 1980 then expanded in 2001). 

The population of East Lower Mills is very diverse yet small in size. About 5,340 people live in East Lower Mills/Cedar Grove. About 38 percent of the population is Caucasian or Non-Hispanic, 31 percent is American Indian, 15 percent is Black, 7 percent is Asian, and 6 percent is Hispanic or Latino. Lower 

The History of East Lower Mills

Before the construction of homes and businesses in Lower East Mills/Cedar Grove, the area belonged predominantly to Native Americans. The Massachusett tribe, for instance, lived around the present Ventura Street Playground, Dorchester Park, and along the Neponset River Reservation. During the 1630s, when Israel Stoughton received parcels of land, he started with building grist mills and factories. In 1637, John Whipple, who apprenticed under Stoughton, made his home between Butler and Bearse Streets. 

The Baker Chocolate Company in East Lower Mills was one of the first factories to make chocolate in the United States. The company started in 1765, shortly after John Hannon, an Irish chocolate marker, received beans that had been imported from the West Indies. He refined those beans in Dorchester alongside Dr. James Baker. Shortly after, they opened their chocolate mill in the Lower Mills area of Dorchester. In 1989, after many years of neglect, the buildings along the river, including the former Baker Chocolate Company, were converted into apartments and condominiums.

First, you can visit the Neponset Riverwalk to see the Neponset River Waterfall and snap pictures of the gorgeous scenery.

Both of these spaces have stunning greenery and landscaping. You can walk around the cemetery to see the old gravestones and the gorgeous chapel before reconnecting with the Neponset Riverwalk and entering the Neponset River Reservation area. If you want to be along the river’s edge, head to the Lower Mills VFW Memorial Post Playground.
