Starting off in the early 1600s as a community for the Native American Mattahunt Tribe, Mattapan turned into an Irish, Jewish, and Haitian immigrant community at the turn of the 21st century. Now, Mattapan is known as one of the largest African American and Caribbean neighborhoods in the greater Boston area. Maintaining its diverse and culturally-representative population, Mattapan had developed both residentially and commercially as a mix of housing opportunities arose, offering a blend of public housing, small apartment buildings, single- and multi-family homes. Those looking to purchase in the Mattapan neighborhood can find single-family homes around $430,000 - $650,000, multi-family homes around $480,000 - $815,000, and condos from $230,000 - $500,000. Mattapan also rubs shoulders with the town of Milton, an affluent Boston suburb. Boston's Public Transit streaks through Mattapan with the MBTA Commuter Rail and Mattapan-Ashmont trolley line, as well as several bus routes. Residents enjoy the attention to green space throughout this neighborhood, with Harambee Park, the Franklin Park Zoo, the Boston Nature Center and Wild Life Sanctuary, and the Forest Hills Cemetery.
