History is a huge part of Massachusetts’ culture fabric. Between the first Thanksgiving celebrations in Plymouth to Major League Baseball’s oldest ballpark in the U.S., here in Massachusetts, our historical attractions and moments in time create a notable set of unique travel experiences.

Within these historical moments, Massachusetts boasts quite a list of “firsts” and “oldests” – and what better a way to present them than an infographic!

In collaboration with the good folks at Travel New England, without further ado, we present to you “Massachusetts First & Oldest” an infographic created to spark your inner-historian, full Massachusetts’ first and oldest factoids!
