Dorchester Illustration of the Day no. 1810 Farrington Store

Dorchester Illustration of the Day no. 1810


The Farrington Store was a mid-19th century neighborhood store for the Glover’s Corner area.  The Farrington Store building is still located at Dorchester’s most historically dangerous intersection where Freeport Street crosses Dorchester Avenue.  Traffic improvements in the Dorchester Avenue project have made turning a little easier.
