Historic Port – Boston

Cradle of Modern America

Boston is the oldest continually active major port in the Western Hemisphere. Though it did not become an international cargo port until 1630, for at least four thousand years previously, it had served as a settlement and trading area for Native American tribes. The port is home to two shipyards, numerous public and private ferry operations, and world-renowned marine research institutions.
