Mashpee tribe would put a casino in Taunton
Talks with city, Patrick come next
The Mashpee Wampanoag Indian tribe will announce today that it has chosen land in Taunton, near the intersection of routes 24 and 140, as the site for its long-sought tribal casino, according to a source close to the tribe. Tribal officials will soon begin discussions with city leaders about building a casino on the land, which the tribe holds an option to buy. Finding land has been the Mashpee’s top priority since casino gambling was legalized in Massachusetts last year.
