Historic Lower Mills is the southern part of Dorchester that borders Milton. Next to the Neponset River, the Walter Baker Building is within sight and walking distance of the Milton T station (which is a short ride on the Mattapan Trolley from Ashmont Station on the Red Line -- you do not pay extra for this ride).
