The history of Boston traces back to its indigenous era, occupied by the Massachusett people. European colonization began in 1630, with the arrival of Puritan settlers and the foundation of Boston. The settlement was named after the English town of Boston by its leader Isaac Johnson. Boston thrived as a port city engaged in shipping and fishing during the colonial period, but faced economic challenges before the Revolution.

Key events of the American Revolution unfolded in Boston, including the Boston Tea Party and the Siege of Boston. The city played a significant role in sparking the revolution due to British taxation and military presence. After a year-long siege, the British forces withdrew from Boston following the Patriots' strategic moves in March 1776.

Post-revolution, Boston's seafaring tradition fueled trade, and the city saw growth in manufacturing. Culturally, it became known for its literary and artistic contributions, attracting elites known as Boston Brahmins. The city was a hub for abolitionist movements and reacted strongly to the Fugitive Slave Act.

Boston underwent changes in the 19th century, experiencing an influx of European immigrants, particularly Irish, who significantly impacted the city's demographics and cultural landscape. Land reclamation expanded Boston's area, annexing neighboring towns, and shaping the city's layout as it grew and evolved
