Excerpt from The Old Boston Post Road
Meanwhile, there had been material progress in agri cultural lines. As long as the settlements were along the coast, communication and interchange of commodities were easy by means of vessels; but the settlements began to grow inland, and roads became necessary to maintain communication; and roads are great factors in develop ment and civilization. Several such roads were developed from the Indian trails leading from Boston, so that in time there came to be two well defined post roads from Boston to New York, and a third developed later 1n the days of the turnpikes.
