Mattapan History

Mattapan’s history rivals that of other Boston communities as it was originally home to the Mattahunt tribe. The name “Mattapan” is thought to have been the Native American word for “a good place to be.” After Europeans settled the area, Mattapan went on to flourish as one of Boston’s pre-eminent Jewish neighborhoods. Several synagogues from that era have been repurposed into stunning condos and living areas. By the 1980s, a wave of newer immigrants brought their own culture and traditions with Mattapan today a stronghold for Haitian, African and Caribbean residents. Leonard Bernstein, the composer and conductor, and Big Shug, the rapper, are notable Mattapan residents.
