A summer resort for wealthy Bostonians, the first home in America for countless immigrants, and the residence of a Colonial Governor, Chelsea, Massachusetts, has a varied and unique history. The town was settled in 1624, six years before Boston, and began as a simple ferry stop on the road to the North Shore and beyond. With the advent of improved transportation in the 19th century, Chelsea's accessibility to the mainland made it the perfect place to relocate, and the community began to thrive.
