Boston, Massachusetts

Boston was settled in 1635 by people from Roxbury and Watertown, and was incorporated in 1636. It became the county seat of Norfolk County. When the Town was incorporated, the residents wanted to name it Contentment. The Massachusetts General Court overruled them and named the town after Boston, Essex in England, where some of the original inhabitants were born.

The early residents of town built the first American canal, the first tax supported public school and Jonathan Fairbanks built what is today the oldest house in North America. Of towns founded during the colonial era, Boston is one of the few towns "that has preserved extensive records of its earliest years." They have been described as "very full and perfect."
