Montclair (Quincy, Massachusetts)
Montclair is a neighborhood of Quincy, Massachusetts.
Originally part of Dorchester, the neighborhood - then largely uninhabited farmland and marshland - was annexed to Quincy in 1792.
Most of the neighborhood was built and settled in the early 1900s, when real estate entrepreneurs began subdividing the farmland for Boston's nascent growth into the suburbs. The Micah Pope farm was one of the largest to be subdivided, in 1883, and the developer who did so was responsible for the name "Montclair." 
Major landmarks include the Montclair Elementary School, Montclair Park, Bishop Field and the Presidents' Golf Course.
Montclair is next to the North Quincy MBTA Red Line station, and MBTA bus route 211 (Squantum-Quincy Center) services it.
