Additional Information: 

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts was founded in 1620 by passengers of the Mayflower and was one of the original thirteen colonies that would become the United States of America. The state’s capital, Boston, was founded ten years later in 1630 named after Boston, Lincolnshire, on the Eastern coast of England. The state’s population grew to 2,495,345 between the years 1890 and 1900, which occurred just after the state finished the majority of land reclamation projects spanning from 1631 to 1890 that tripled the area of usable land.
