What do chocolate and the Neponset River have in common? Join a DCR Park Ranger and Dorchester Historical Society volunteers on a scenic stroll in Milton and Dorchester Lower Mills to find out. We’ll explore the former Baker Chocolate Factory site and learn about the sweet history of Lower Mills as part of Historic Preservation Month in Massachusetts. We’ll end our tour at the Baker Chocolate Artist Lofts (Administration Building) and learn about the DCR’s Historic Curatorship program. For ages 10 and up.
The route is less than one mile.
