Sweet: Old North Church gets grant to study life of North End chocolate maker

Walter Baker in Dorchester is normally the only chocolate guy people think of in Boston, but it turns out the North End had a chocolate maker of its own. The Old North Church reports it's won a $13,000 Forrest E. Mars, Jr. Chocolate History Research Grant from, yes, the maker of Mars Bars, to study the life of Capt. Newark Jackson, a parishioner who owned a chocolate mill and store in the North End back in Colonial days.

The church will also use the money to research colonial cacao trade routes.
