General Boston Neighborhood Information -
Mattapan Real Estate


Mattapan was annexed to Boston in 1870 as part of Dorchester. Like other neighborhoods of the time, Mattapan developed as the railroads and streetcars made downtown Boston accessible. Predominately residential, Mattapan is home to a mix of single homes (in South Mattapan and Wellington Hills ) as well as two and three family houses. Mattapan Square, where Blue Hill Avenue, River Street, and Cummins Highway meet, is the commercial heart of the neighborhood. A stop on the Red Line's Ashmont train, the neighborhoods of Mattapan are conveniently connected to Boston. Mattapan Square is one of Boston's oldest shopping areas and in recent years the neighborhoods have experienced a promising growth in population. The Franklin Field area, filled with two-family wood or brick units and triple deckers, has been stabilized due to market improvement and public housing investments.
