The Ancient Forest In Massachusetts That’s Right Out Of A Storybook

The history of this state didn’t start with the Mayflower. Long before colonists arrived from Europe, native peoples lived in what we now consider Massachusetts. Even before that, ancient woodlands spread their branches far and wide over the land. Part of this ancient forest still survives today.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
