The City of Boston
Boston is one of America’s oldest cities. Founded on the Shawmut Peninsula in 1630 by Puritan settlers from England, Boston was integral to the American Revolution and the scene of several key events, including the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, the Battle of Bunker Hill, and the Siege of Boston. Boston’s history can be explored here.
Until the late nineteenth century, Boston was a key port and manufacturing center, and although the port remains active today, the city is now better known as a hub for education, finance and culture, and home to several major universities with internationally renowned schools of law, medicine, engineering, and business. Interactive maps of Boston can be downloaded here and here.
