Puritan Founders

Cambridge Massachusetts is older than the United States itself. Founded by Puritans and briefly the capital city of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, Cambridge in the 17th century was much more than just black hats and buckles. Learn about the city’s early days with that ever impartial observer of the New England character, George Santayana, as he takes you back to a town marked by the most dramatic of characters, from idealists, scholars, and poets to heretics, fanatics, and regicides. You’ll see Harvard in its early days when it was known as “The School of the Prophets” all the way to the end of 1600’s and the stirrings of the enlightenment. Come along on our Saturday sunset stroll to learn about Cambridge’s place in that first tumultuous decade of the English colony.
