HISTORY OF FIELDS CORNER
Fields Corner is a historic Dorchester commercial district. It takes its name from the general store opened by brothers Enos and Isaac Field at the intersection of Adams Street and Dorchester Avenue. This same corner now stands at the center of one of Boston’s busiest business districts.
Modern day Fields Corner is host to a number of historic buildings. These include One Fields Corner (also known as the Lenane Building); One Arcadia Place (formerly the Fields Corner Municipal Building); an original Loews Theatre; and the O’Hearn Storage building. These architectural remnants of another time provide views into Boston’s past through a thriving neighborhood solidly planted in the present.
Today, Fields Corner is a transit hub served by the Ashmont branch of the MBTA Red Line, as well as several MBTA bus lines. This one-mile business district is encircled by unique residential neighborhoods including Fields Corner West; Meetinghouse Hill; Clam Point; and Melville Park.
Jackey West Devine started as Executive Director of Fields Corner Main Street in December 2019, after five years as Administrative Coordinator at Boston University School of Visual Arts, where she also earned her MS in Arts Administration, a degree that focuses on Non-Profit Business Administration and Cultural Enrichment.
Jackey is a fifth generation Bostonian who has lived in Dorchester since 2014. With a background in art, and a passion for community, Jackey hopes to leverage her skill set to break down boundaries that keep Dorchester residents from having a connection with the arts, increase civic engagement and to create plans that help small business people realize their goals.
