Overview

It is symbolically every American's birthplace. No matter where you are from, New England is home. The familiar postcard images of mountains, craggy shores and vivid foliage are known worldwide. Here the four seasons are most sharply defined. Here the earliest European settlers farmed and fished and politicked and prayed. Here the Revolutionaries plotted and fought for a concept as yet unknown in their time-a free people in a democratic land. All the places that conjure those feelings still survive. New England today, is more densely forested than it was in the 1700's. There are still covered bridges and country stores. Colonial homes still stand in fields of apple trees and lobster fishermen still haul their catch aboard. The orange sunrise that greeted Native Americans thousands of years before still finds scenes that stir souls and inspire poets. Here are some of those scenes.
