Brief History

Knowing a bit more about the history of the area will help you prioritize and soak in the scenery around you. The history goes back to Colonial times in the 17th century when the pilgrims from England arrived in 1620 to Plymouth county in Massachusetts. They slowly settled in the southern part of what is known as New England now, and territories in Vermont, Maine and New Hampshire were claimed from the native Indians through the 17th century. In the 18th century, to protest against taxes levied by the Royal empire in England, the New England political leaders initiated what is known as Boston Tea Party. To some extent, this was the beginning of the end of the colonial era in the North America in 1776. This region was also instrumental in abolishing slavery and establishing the country as we know now. Check out further details in numerous museums in Boston.
