The New England region
In 1870, when Dorchester itself was annexed to Boston, it was still a rural community of 12,000 residents. But in that same year came railroad access and ever-increasing residential and commercial development that began to transform what had been essentially an agricultural area. Upper-class Yankees and Irish built one- and two-family Victorian homes on Savin Hill and Jones Hill. At the junction of five streetcar lines, Uphams Corner on Jones Hill became Dorchester's marketplace. By 1920, with new streetcar and municipal water lines supporting growth, the population climbed to 150,000. Today, the renewed interest in classic city living has brought a renaissance to Jones Hill due to its easy access to downtown, Victorian architecture and diverse population. A truly Boston neighborhood, Jones Hill is one of the finest for long-time residents and visitors alike.
