Local History
Ever since the Pilgrims and Puritans respectively established Plymouth Colony in 1620 and Massachusetts Bay Colony ten years later, this area has thrived on a foundation of strong ethics and religious beliefs. Nearly 150 years afterwards, British attempts to increase taxation on the growing colonies ignited the passions of Bostonians resulting in several major retaliations including the Boston Massacre and Boston Tea Party, events that helped define the American Revolution. The British soon challenged, and Paul Revere made his famous midnight ride warning the residents of the countryside that, indeed, the redcoats were coming to fight. Many famous Revolutionary War battles were fought here including Lexington and Concord, Bunker Hill and the Siege of Boston. The colonists eventually prevailed, forcing the British to withdraw from Boston, thus laying the groundwork for the freedoms we enjoy today.
