With a convenient “T” Red Line station, extensive coastline, and easy access to Boston, the Wollaston section of Quincy has always been a desirable place to live. The nationally famous Howard Johnson’s was founded in Wollaston.
This densely populated neighborhood sustains a vibrant and popular business district and is home to some industrial development in sections close to the Red Line. Shops are concentrated on Beale Street and along Hancock Street. The proliferation of restaurants, personal and professional service businesses is testimony to the strength of the market they serve.
Eastern Nazarene College, the city’s only private higher education institution is located here. With over 1200 students and faculty, the college community looks to local businesses for many of its needs.
Wollaston is a focal point of daily shopping for residents, employees and students. Whether it is groceries, banking, lunch or a cup of coffee, it’s all conveniently available in Wollaston. Accounting, travel, catering, cleaning, florist, contracting and lodging services are all there, too.
After an extensive shoreline improvement project, Wollaston Beach has renewed its draw as a regional attraction with its variety of small seafood restaurants and other venues.
