It's no wonder, every time I travel, I find myself comparing the landscape, architecture, and feel to home. New England is bursting with charm, history, age, and most of all, roots; and that includes the people. Generations of folks rooted in their hometown right down to the family owned hardware store or donut shop where the 100-year-old floor boards creak and first-names are commonplace, create an energy, a vibe; it's palpable. Historic towns with historic homes and endless history will always be home to me. What town has more First Period homes than any other in the nation? That same town is on permenant exhibit at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. You know the one! Where are the oldest towns in Massachusetts?
