Welcome to Greater Ashmont Main Street!

Greater Ashmont was designated as one of Boston’s Main Street districts in the summer of 1999. We are a non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation that strives to maintain and further develop our 1.1 mile long section of Dorchester Ave as a welcoming destination for those from inside and outside the area, offering:

  • A transit – oriented, Complete Streets locale that benefits our culturally diverse population,
  • A complementary business mix that supports the needs of area residents and civic organizations,
  • The appeal of rich historical qualities melded with modern day development, and
  • A vibrant social scene offering spaces favorable for community gatherings, which will attract patronage from beyond our region.
