Corporate headquarters include Atrius Health, Dell EMC, Five Star Senior Living, Ocean Spray, Roche Bros Supermarkets, Sensata Technologies, and the Waters Corporation. The Fourth District also features the Myles Standish Industrial Park and the UMass Bio Park, along with numerous hospitals and healthcare providers, including Newton-Wellesley Hospital.

A nerve center for higher education and workforce development, the Fourth District hosts the following colleges and universities: Babson College, Boston College Law School, Bristol Community College, Dean College, Hebrew College, Hellenic College, Lasell College, Mass Bay Community College, New England Institute of Art, Olin College, Pine Manor College, Stonehill College, Wellesley College, and Wheaton College.

The Fourth District also boasts several historical and cultural touchstones for Massachusetts and New England, including Battleship Cove in Fall River, where the USS Massachusetts and USS Joseph P.

“Massachusetts has always been a national leader. We fought at Bunker Hill before the Declaration of Independence, signed our Constitution before the Philadelphia Convention, armed the first black regiment of the Civil War, and legalized same-sex marriage before any state of the union. I’m proud to represent the forward-thinking people of the Massachusetts Fourth as we strive to realize the core American promise of equal opportunity.” - Jake Auchincloss
