Dartmouth, Massachusetts

The Town of Dartmouth was settled in 1652 by English Puritans and formally incorporated in 1664. Dartmouth is located approximately 60 miles south of Boston on the Atlantic Ocean. Dartmouth has a permanent population of approximately 30,000. The University of Massachusetts and University of Massachusetts Law School have satellite campuses in Dartmouth.

Dartmouth’s lands, which originally included Westport, Fairhaven, Acushnet and New Bedford, were purchased from the local Wampanoag Indian chiefs by Plymouth Colonists and later sold to the Religious Society of Friends or Quakers. Several historic Quaker meeting houses still exist in Dartmouth. In 1789, Westport and New Bedford incorporated as separate towns, and Dartmouth's present borders were established. Unlike neighboring Fall River and New Bedford, Dartmouth's character has been largely agricultural and residential. During the late 19th century; however, its location on sheltered Buzzards Bay caused Dartmouth to become a favored resort area for its wealthy society neighbors. As trolleys became a popular form of city transportation in New England, many communities established pleasure parks at the line terminus to encourage increased ridership. Many of these parks initially consisted of lakeside picnic grounds and pavilions for dancing, later expanding to include amusement park rides and games. Dartmouth's Lincoln Park, developed by the Union Street Railway Company in 1894, was a popular destination until the mid-1980's, when aging rides and declining attendance caused its closure. With much of its former structure destroyed by arson, Lincoln Park is currently slated for development as mixed housing and retail properties.

Retail development and restoration of historic properties in Dartmouth may have put workers at risk. Workers exposed to asbestos-containing construction materials are at risk to develop mesothelioma.
