Before the Europeans came,
three large tribes of American Indians
lived in southeastern Massachusetts.
They were the Massachusett, the
Nauset, and the Wampanoag. 


The Massachusetts Colony had
the first public school system in
America. The colonists paid taxes
to pay for the schools.


By the  early 1700s,
Boston Massachusetts was the
center of business in New England.


Read about how an American Indian
named Squanto helped the Puritans
survive, how the Puritans lived by
strict rules of their church, and how
they ruled themselves for 54 years
before England made Massachusetts
a Royal Colony. Plus learn how
Massachusetts became our sixth state.
