Boston, the capital of Massachusetts, is one of the oldest cities in America, dating back to English settlers founding the place in 1630. It is famous in American history for being the site of many major transformative events in the American Revolution, such as the legendary Boston Tea Party, the Siege of Boston, and the Boston Massacre. This heritage of transformation continues today, as the city is the site of many educational centers and is considered a center of innovation in science and technology.
