The Best of New England

~Our Humble Beginnings~

In 1630, 1,000 Puritan settlers from England followed Governor John Winthrop, who had received a charter from King Charles I, to The New World in of search religious freedom and economic opportunity. Thus, the formation of the Massachusetts Bay Colony.

Our Daily Lives

As of today, we in Massachusetts, (well, the select few that are actually members of the church...) are ruled by a theocratic government. Our economy is sustained by the trade of fish, fur, and timber using our rivers as a source transportation. We were also the first ones to begin minting the metal coin and using water-powered gristmills in order to grind corn.
