Economy

Come on over to the New England colonies

Come on over here, where we have huge jobs such as cutting down trees and floating them to sawmills, trading ports to Massachusetts and New Hampshire . These cities grew into major trading centers. In 1600s, some people hunted whales which traded for oil for lamps and other items. Whaling grew into a big business in 1700s and 1800s.
