Here Are The 15 Oldest Towns In The U.S…. And They’re Loaded With History

America wasn’t built in a day, or by a single set of hands. So many incredible people, cultures, and experiences have helped to shape this country into the place it is today. From coast to coast, the country’s oldest towns stand as evidence of a vast array of amazing historical events and influences that still impact our lives today. Our historic cities are beautiful, interesting, and totally unique.

Note: this is NOT a list of the nation’s oldest towns, listed in chronological order. We’ve sought to highlight some well-known historic sites, as well as introduce you to a few lesser-known historic towns that deserve some attention.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
