Neponset River, Massachusetts
Norfolk county. The sources of this river are Canton, Stoughton, and Sharon. It receives a tributary from Charles river, Mother brook, so called, and meets the tide of Boston harbor at Milton Mills, 4 miles from Dorchester bay. This is a noble mill stream: on its navigable waters is the depository of the Quincy granite rail-road company, and at its mouth is Commercial Point in Dorchester, a beautiful place, with an excellent harbor.
