From stately Colonials to modest Capes, you’re sure to find some lovingly restored homes, some of which date back to the 1600s.

walter baker chocolate - dorchester ma

You’ll find plenty of history in the Boston area, but perhaps no other location’s history is quite as sweet as Dorchester. That’s because Dorchester was once the epicenter of chocolate.

While Dorchester is now considered Boston’s largest neighborhood, it was actually founded by English Puritans in the 1600s as its own town. Before it was annexed to Boston, however, the sweet treat of chocolate was introduced to the American colonies.

As the story goes, an Irish chocolate maker brought in cocoa beans from the West Indies with the goal of refining them in the Dorchester area. He eventually teamed up with an American physician and investor to open America’s very first chocolate mill and factory in the Lower Mills.

No long after, a second

Pleasant Bay - Cape Cod MA

Whether sailing, kayaking, fishing or lounging on the sand, Pleasant Bay presents a wealth of options for Cape Cod visitors and locals alike. Close to Harwich, Chatham and Orleans, the bay is extremely popular with visitors to both Nauset Beach and Barrier Beach.

As Cape Cod’s largest saltwater estuary, Pleasant Bay has likely been known by many names over the years. It’s believed Native Americans once called the protected waterway Monomoyick Bay, while an early explorer referred to it as Manamock. It took about a century more for the current name of Pleasant Bay to emerge.

To this day, though, Pleasant Bay continues to live up to its most current namesake, a relaxing and peaceful location that’s inspirational to all who visit. It’s also a great

leather district - boston ma

Noted as Boston’s very first loft district, the Leather District changed from an industrial area to a mixed-use area in more recent years. Once the center of Boston’s leather industry, the Leather District is now where you’ll find countless loft-style residences mixed in throughout the 19th century brick warehouse buildings.

Prized for its loft-style living floor plans, the community also holds the advantage of sitting merely a short distance away from Boston’s South Station. This makes the Leather District one of the most accessible neighborhoods in Boston.

Sometimes referred to as the “LD”, the nine-block area isn’t just residential. It is also home to everything from small restaurants to large corporations. One of the nation’s oldest
