Edward Everett Square in the 1840’s, when it was known as “Five Corners”

After the American Revolution, Dorchester landowners and manufacturers prospered. Local businesses thrived, and many individuals became well educated, influencing politics, education, science and industry. Edward Everett, statesmen and orator, was born in the house featured above. A bronze marker at Edward Everett Square now marks the location of this house.
