Replacing the Old Dorchester Milestone in front of the Blake House at the 175th anniversary of the settlement of Dorchester, Dorchester Day June 1907

Efforts to preserve Dorchester’s history began in the mid 1800’s when individuals with a common reverence for the past gathered to discuss historic curiosities and consider collected artifacts. By 1891 the group had evolved into The Dorchester Historical Society, whose mission was to promote, collect and publish the history of Dorchester.
