Senior Living in a Convenient & Historical Location
A complete renovation of the Fabreeka Mills textile factory Standish Village is located in the heart of the historic Lower Mills neighborhood which borders Dorchester, MA and Milton, MA. Other restored mill buildings are clustered close by along the Neponset River, including our famous neighbor, the Baker Chocolate Factory. The neighborhood is bustling with life, surrounded by newly developed condos, eateries, and local businesses. Standish Village is also a short walk from the Milton MBTA stop and an array of dining, shopping and banking services.
While the residents of Standish Village enjoy a chic yet historic building, recently renovated and nestled in a quaint up and coming neighborhood, it’s the people of our community that really make Standish Village something special. Check out our facebook page to see residents in action!
