History

Boston Harbor was first home to Algonquian tribes including the Wampanoag, Massachuset, and Nauset. They survived hunting and fishing until Europeans came into the area and brought smallpox which led to 90% of the natives dying in the early 1600’s. Shortly after, Puritans seeking religious freedom from England settled around Boston Harbor in 1630. It was then that the area was named Boston after a town in England. Once the Massachusetts Bay Colony was formed, the harbor became an important and busy center of commerce.

Boston Harbor was a scene for many important historical events. In 1765, when the Stamp Act was introduced, the citizens of Boston destroyed the governor’s residence. Later in 1770, the famous Boston Massacre occurred where British soldiers killed city residents.
