Dorchester Atheneum 2

DorchesterAtheneum2 is a website devoted to the history of Dorchester, Massachusetts.  Founded in 1630, the town was independent until January 1, 1870, when it joined the city of Boston.

www.dorchesteratheneum.org is an earlier site that explores Dorchester history, but the programming of the site is now out-of-date.  The older site will co-exist on the web until all the content is moved to the new and revised dorchesteratheneum2.org.  At that time the earlier site will be taken down.
