About Cambridge, Massachusetts - USA

About Cambridge and Boston

The city of Boston is the biggest city and the capital of Massachusetts. It was founded in 1630 and was established as a city in 1822 as one of America's oldest cities with a rich historical culture. With its surrounding and neighboring areas, it is also the center of higher education and the economical hub of New England region.

Situated directly across the Charles River from Boston, Cambridge offers an exciting multicultural setting where visitors from around the world mingle in the shadow of two of the world's premier educational institutions: Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Teeming with cafes, bookstores, and boutiques, Cambridge is often referred to as "Boston's Left Bank". The city of Cambridge, founded in 1630 along with Boston, was known as Newtowne until 1638 and was established as a city in 1846. The customs and institutions of Newtowne's first residents are discernible in the street plan of their settlement, which survives almost intact in Harvard Square. The neighborhood of Old Cambridge remains a residential, commercial, and academic center. The buildings here span four centuries of Cambridge history and have witnessed the development of a wilderness village into an international community. The most famous house along "Tory Row" on Brattle Street is the Longfellow National Historic Site, former home of poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and briefly the headquarters of General George Washington during the Revolutionary War.
