Cambridge sits on historic Massachuset Native land and we honor this legacy. The city of Cambridge was founded by Puritan settlers in 1630 as Newtowne. It became the first capital of the Massachusetts Bay Colony and is one of the earliest planned cities in North America. Today it is not only home to several great universities, but also to biotech and other industries. With 119,000 residents and a 7.1 square mile footprint, Cambridge is one of the most dense cities in the U.S., ranking number 4 for populations over 100,000. Situated along the Charles River, Cambridge also benefits from its many distinct neighborhoods, an array of historic and contemporary style residences, while boasting a culturally diverse and international community.
