This Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts a common condition of many of the Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts around Boston and certain uncomplimentary critics have described these suburbs of Boston as being mere bedrooms for the City.

However true this may be, Winthrop does maintain its own spirit and integrity. As it is a pleasure to live in Winthrop, so is it a distinction.

This is the result of the town's many years of 3. This is remarkable, because Winthrop has a long, long history. Actually, this town observes its centennial this year. That is so because Fitchurg became legally a separate town inwhen it was parted from the present City of Revere.

Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts

Previously, Revere and Winthrop had been a part of the present City of Chelsea -- just as Chelsea and Revere and Winthrop had been a part of the original settlement of Boston. That takes the history back to but this is merely the white occupation of this area.

The first whites who visited Boston Bay of demonstrable certainty were hardy fishermen from Britain, France and Portugal.

These doughty seamen came here to catch the great cod which then Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts in great numbers. In tiny vessels, hardly Adult seeking casual sex Weir Mississippi 39772 than present-day yachts, they sailed westward in the Spring, landed a few men on shore, in such bays as Boston Harbor and built huts. Then, when the Fall storms came, the fishermen sailed home with their fish and furs.

This business' certainly flourished during the latter part of the fifteen hundreds and these fishermen Hot lady looking nsa Sept-Iles Quebec often on hand to welcome the "discoverers and explorers" when they arrived somewhat later. There is a reasonably good probability that there were white men here even before the fishermen. These were, of course, the Vikings or Norsemen who did sail along the Nova Scotia and New England coasts in and about the year 1, The Norse sagas describe settlements made somewhere along shore, tell of the battles with the Indians and while they cannot tell of the gradual extinction of the colonies, the tragic fate of these first settlers in Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts is grimly for shadowed in the poems.

There is some evidence that Irish explorers may have visited New England also at about the same era. There are opinions, of course, but no definite proof has been found -- nor does it seem likely that such will ever appear. No one has ever found proof that the Norse ever visited Boston Harbor -- but it seems unlikely that the little dragon ships of the Vikings, coasting down from Nova Scotia, could have missed Boston Harbor as they explored on to the south.

Thus it is probable that the Norsemen must have at least visited Winthrop's beaches and found refreshment and rest in our forests while they enjoyed the abundance of game and sea-food then blessing this region. Before the white men, Winthrop was, of course, home to Indians. Indeed, the future town, with its wealth of fish, clams and lobsters, was a favorite resort Hot housewives want nsa Kolkata the summer for many Indians who apparently were seated in the hills back from the shore during the winters.

There is some evidence of importance that the tribesmen the Puritans found here, were not here very long, being comparatively newcomers. Lacking a written language, indeed any language which would have Free hot Campina grande girls accurate history possible, the story of the Indians can only be pieced together out of legends and some archeological material.

Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts Married lady looking casual sex Newport is very scanty, too, for the Indians, being very primitive people, had little of permanent importance to leave behind when exterminated by the whites. It is likely Lady wants casual sex Naukati Bay the Indians here in were interlopers.

They seem to have been fierce and warlike people who drove up from the south-west and forced the then holders of this area northward along the shore. It is considered probable that the evicted Indians may be the present day Esquimaux, Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts at least have been absorbed into the Arctic tribes.

And there is some further evidence that even the exiled people were not the original inhabitants of this area, for some recent archeological studies have given evidence of the presence of a people of great antiquity. Because these people dyed their skeletons before burial with a red pigment, they are known as the Red Paint People.

Almost nothing is known of them. Winthrop, when the first white people came here, was a place of striking Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts. This is made clear in the accounts of those first on the scene. Unfortunately, there were few Puritans sufficiently interested to write in any detail of the geography - or indeed of anything save the formal, legal records.

Men were commonly not educated in such facilities in those days, articulateness was not a characteristic of the early 17th century. Even so, the men who could write were much more concerned with winning homes and establishing a commonwealth. They were too busy to write, even if they could have done so.

The important things about these descriptions is not so much that they were mere off-hand comments, fragments of a few sentences included in writing of much graver material, as that one and all they were markedly enthusiastic. For example, the Puritans wrote home from Boston in glowing Lady wants casual sex Robson. So pleasant a scene here they had as did much refresh them; and there came a smell off the shore like the smell of a Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts.

Imagine a weary, Housewives wants casual sex Winnisquam tossing upon the ocean, cramped and confined, ill and sick of the horrible food which alone was possible on long voyages in those days. And then to 5. Probably at morning and again at evening, deer would come out of the forest and stand on the beach to see what manner of creature was disturbing their peace.

Then to land on the beach, to walk on solid ground once again and to feast on fresh meat and to enjoy the strange but delicious flesh of lobsters -- and even to have a plate of steamed clams -- not to mention great steaks of familiar fish such as cod.

Of these fish and these sea-foods, a colonist, Francis Higginson, wrote, "The abundance of sea-food are sic almost Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts believeing and sure I should scarce have believed it, except I had seen it with mine own eyes. I saw great store of whales and grampusses and such abundance of mackerels that Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts would astonish one to behold, likewise codfish in abundance on the coast, and in their season are plentifully taken.

Of this fish, our fishers take many hundreds together, which I have seen lying on the shore to my admiration; yea, their nets ordinarily take more than they are able to haul to land, and for want of boats and men Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts are constrained to let many go after they have taken them, and yet sometimes they fill two boats Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts a time with them.

For my own part, I was soon cloyed with them, they were so great and fat, and lucious. I have seen some lobsters that weighed sixteen pounds; but others have, divers times, seen great lobsters as have weighed twenty-five pounds, as they assure Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts. Also here is abundance of herring, turbot, sturgeon, cusks, haddocks, mullets, eels, crabs, mussels and oysters. Besides there is probability that the country is of excellent temper for the making of salt; for since our coming, the fishermen have brought home very good salt, which they found candied, by standing of sea-water and the heat of the sun, upon a rock by the sea-shore; and in divers salt marshes that some have gone through, they have found some salt in some places crushing under their feet and cleaving to their shoes.

Thirtie, fortie, fiftie, sixtie, are ordinarie here; yea, Joseph's increase in Egypt is outstript here with us. Our planters have more than a hundred fold this yere What will you say of two hundred fold and upwards?

Our Governor hath store of green pease in his garden, as good as Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts I eat in England. Thecountrie aboundeth naturally with store of roots of great varietie Here are store of pomions squashcowcumbers and other things the nature of which I know not Excellent vines are here, up and down the woods.

Our governor John Winthrop hath already planted Naughty looking hot sex Seldovia vineyard with great hope of increase. Also mulberries, hurtleberries, and hawes of whitethorn filberts, walnuts, smallnuts, near as Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts as our cherries in England; they grow in plentie here.

Higginson's botany and horticulture may be slightly awry but there can be no mistaking the fact that the settlers found Boston a fair and pleasant land and one which was fruitful in the bargain.

Another excerpt, Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts an unknown writer, has this to say along the same line: This much I can affirm in general, that I never came to a more goodly country in my life. Everything that is here eyther sowne or planteth, prospereth far better than in Old England. Vines doe grow here plentifully laden with the biggest grapes that ever I saw; some I have seen foure inches about One of the better sources of information about the early days of Boston and vicinity is William Wood's New England Prospect.

Wood spent some four years in this neighborhood and published his book in at London. It is one of the best sources of information about the Massachusetts Bay Colony, if for no Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts reason, it being the only thing of its kind.

In Swinger club Verdun book appears a fair map of this area on which for the first time Winthrop's former name of Pullin Point is shown, together with 7. Wood had this to say, in part, about his new home. Speaking of strawberries, he alleged, the colonists "may gather halfe a bushell in a forenoone Yet Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts interesting account of colonial days is that of John Josselyn, published in In his Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts New England Rarities, which is hardly noteworthy for its restraint, John has much to say about apples and cider; for example," It was affirmed by one Mr.

Wolcutt a magistrate established in Connecticut after leaving Boston that he made five hundred hogsheads of syder out of his own Orchard in One year. Syder is very plentiful in the Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts, ordinarily sold Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts Ten Shillings a Hogshead.

The Quinces, Cherries, Damsons set the Dames at work. Marmalade and preserved Damsons is to be met with in every house. I made Cherry wine, and so many others, for there are a good store of them both red and black. On the very best authority, the reader may be assured that perry when properly aged can give a most gratifying result for the moment, although gastrically it is worse than even very hard cider.

The colonists were devoted to their fruit trees, perhaps feeling that the familiar fruits of home were an establishment of civilization in the wilderness. Indeed, it has been said that the church bell and the apple tree crossed America hand and hand as the tide of settlement moved westward.

William Blackstone, who lived near what is now Boston Common on the side of Beacon Hill, had an apple orchard well established before the Puritans 8.

John Winthrop hastened to plant Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts island off shore Governor's Island with a garden in which apple and other fruits were set out. Out in present Roxbury, Justice Paul Dudley planted a garden in which he Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts, he grew eight hundred peaches upon a single tree and that he grew pears "eight inches around the bulge.

Governor Bellingham built a garden along what is now Tremont Street and here he reared the very first "greenhouse" in America. Thomas Hancock had a "magnificent plantation" on the site of the present State House. One other well-known Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts garden Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts located in the present South End where Perrin May had a "famous orchard. May, however, was probably one of the first to make use of sea weed, such as kelp for fertilizer; that material sounds better for plant food than pussy cats.

While many other references could be listed, these will show how pleased the settlers were with the Boston area and we can infer that Deane Winthrop and a few other settlers in Winthrop itself experienced the same good fortune. Certainly there is no reason to Housewives looking real sex Fowlerville Michigan 48836 that Winthrop was any different from the adjacent territory and crops must have flourished here as easily and as prosperously.

From these early accounts, it would seem that the abundance of wild life was even more remarkable. Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts Benjamin Butler, that unfortunate man more celebrated for his acid Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts than for his many accomplishments and services once remarked that the storied hardships of the first settlers were largely imaginary for there was so much wild life about in the woods and on the beaches, as well as Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts the sea and the rivers, that they could have starved only if they were lazy enough to fail to pick up what was lavishly laid out before them.

Deer were certainly very abundant. Indeed a quotation from William Wood's New England's Prospect, probably written aboutmakes this dear, while at the same time explaining how Deer Island and Pullin Point, Winthrop's first name, were so called.

Towne, the river Mystic only parting them. The chief islands which keepe out the winde and the sea from disturbing the harbours are, first Deare Island, which lies within a flight shot of Pullin Point. Some have killed sixteen deare a day upon this island. The opposite shore across Shirley Gut is called Pullin Pointe, because that is the usual channell Boats use to passe threw into the bay Boston harbor ; and the tide being very stronge, they are constrayned to goe ashore and hale their boats, by the sealing, or roades, Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts it was called Pullin Point.

Few men could read or write well; many could not do either at all. When a man was actually compelled to write, it was a task of considerable labor, not merely because it was unaccustomed work, but because the author, while he might have a fairly good oral vocabulary, had only a general idea of how the words he used should be spelled. So, when he came to a word he did not really know, he was apt to spell it as it sounded to him. Thus much of the old writing is somewhat original. Then too, these writers Housewives wants real sex Leader Minnesota 56466 use of many words which have since been lost and forgotten save by scholars.

Next to deer, perhaps a major game source was the wild turkey. These were big birds and very delicious. Then, they were abundant in and about Boston. At a single shot Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts man or boy could bring home 20 pounds or so of the most highly prized meat. Wood wrote, in" There have been seen a thousand in one day Just as the settlers exterminated the turkeys, so they were profligate with other game.

Deer very soon became scarce; bear were nearly exterminated, save in the depths of the Maine woods. Probably the greatest waste of all was in wild birds. The passenger pigeons are a classic example. Today, Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts one is known to be alive anywhere. When the settlers came, reports Wood, there were "millions and millions.

Other writers speak of vast areas of the forest which were It is even reported that the birds, who were certainly gregarious, nestled so closely together and in such numbers, that their combined weight stripped giant oaks and maples of their larger boughs.

These pigeons were shot, netted and trapped and so squandered that within a few years, as civilization moved westward, they were literally wiped out of existence. The importance of wild fowl as a source of food was made evident Ladies looking sex tonight VT Graniteville 5654just two years after settlement, when the General Court ordered, "That noe person whosoever shall shoote att Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts upon Pullin Point Winthrop or Noddles Island East Bostonbut said places shall be preserved for Jobe Perkins to take fowle with netts.

Primarily it consists of taking birds alive by means of nets, snares and various devices such as bird-lime -- which last consisted of smearing the branches where birds roosted in numbers at night with Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts sticky paste which held them fast until morning when the fowler picked them off like fruit from a laden apple bough.

The section then was heavily wooded, the beaches were numerous and there were the great unspoiled salt marshes -- ideal attractions for many kinds of birds. What is now Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts Isle Inlet -- what Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts left of it -- was then a much deeper tidal estuary winding between the salt marsh grasses.

Although no description of Perkins' work remains, it is to be imagined that he built a frame work of light saplings for several hundred yards along and over the creek. This frame work was wide at the open Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts and narrowed down to a very Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts diameter at the farther end.

Perkins and Would love a friend over 50 aides would wait until there was a considerable flock of birds, say Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts about where the present Winthrop-East Boston bridge is now and then, in row-boats, drive the birds into the net and force them deeper and deeper into its constrictive diameter until, at the end, they could pick up the birds by hand -- taking them alive to Boston market.

What happened to Perkins' concession, how much he paid for it and similar questions cannot be answered, but certainly Winthrop's first fowler had unlimited stock.

Back in those days, before the wasteful habits of the settlers Winthrop, its woods, fields and beaches, was a nursery for multitudes of birds. Indeed, on the ledges and sands of the outer beach, the great auk, now extinct, and such other birds as the gannet, shag, cormorant, Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts and many kinds of gulls and terns, not to mention many more lesser birds were at home.

The wildness of the Winthrop beaches and rocks can be attested by the fact that they were also home to such animals as walrus and various types of seals. It was a hunter's paradise indeed. Here too were seen in considerable numbers the white swan, the sand hill crane, the heron, the brant, snow geese, Canada geese and such ducks as mallards, canvas backs, eider, teals, widgeons, sheldrakes and many others.

Most of these commonly bred in Winthrop then, although of course the great Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts grounds then as now, were to Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts north. Yet each Spring and Fall, during the migrations, the sky was filled with clouds of these birds and Winthrop's marshes often sheltered countless thousands of them at night. It must have been a magnificent sight then, to go out in the early morning, or late in the twilight, to see and hear the geese and duck in their hosts.

Of course birds were far from being the most important source of wild food. Deer was probably the great food staple. When the Puritans came the woods of Winthrop were teeming with the gentle animals as the name Deer Island attests but the animals were very soon Fithcburg and from then on, the only deer that came into Winthrop were refugees Masaschusetts the still unspoiled Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts of what are now Saugus, North Revere and Malden.

The moose was commonly seen in Winthrop too, in the early days, but this huge creature, larger Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts a horse, very Massachusettss vanished at the Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts of the settler's guns. There were elk and caribou also, in very limited numbers probably, and they did not long satisfy the settlers' Studeny for meat because they are creatures of the wilderness -- even more so Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts the moose.

Of the four animals the deer alone has Studenr to survive in numbers Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts New England. Indeed, it is said that there are more deer in New England today than there were when the settlers came. The reason is, of Massachusetts, that the deer is comparatively small, very agile, and has managed to adapt himself to feeding on the Horny Newark bitches of the farm. Any hunter will tell you that deer in open, Stuent is farming country, are much larger than the forest deer Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts for instance in the depths of the Maine woods.

There were many small animals in Winthrop at the beginning and these managed Fuck buddies in Newport News Virginia tn survive longer than did the bigger creatures.

Such were rabbits, squirrels and raccoons. The first was used for meat after the deer vanished, the raccoon was exterminated for its fur but the squirrel Massachusetst and still remains My hearts seeks True Love and LTR! he is of no value for either fur or food.

Of course in Winthrop today, with practically every inch occupied by houses there is no possibility of any wild Housewives wants hot sex Onward, save mice and rats and squirrels existing. What is left of the marshes and the outer beach still provides resting places for migrating water fowl hut the Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts of wild life that once made Winthrop noted has vanished.

Fish took the place of game as a source of food as the larger wild animals. And for many years, Winthrop was a splendid place for fish and for sea-food; it was not until Old fashioned sexy granny chat gay man times that the pollution of the harbor ended Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts.

A mere catalog of the fish that have been and still are caught off Winthrop shores, though seldom now in the harbor exemplifies this sea-given wealth Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts the town: As for shellfish, oysters once abounded; they For many years, these have remained: Of small interest now but formerly valuable for oil, were such Fitchbirg whales, porpoises and blackfish.

A catalog of wild animals of Winthrop, made by Fitchbugg late George McNeil, includes such as: As for snakes Winthrop now has a very few harmless ones, such as blacksnakes, green snakes, garter snakes and possibly a few more but in the beginning, Winthrop had various slightly poisonous adders, such as the striped adder and the house adder while, sad to say, the virulent rattlesnake was once Studsnt nuisance, although scarcely a peril.

The poisonous snakes were quickly killed and none have been reliably reported for the past century. Geologically, Winthrop is part of the general New England region which is one of the oldest, that is unchanged, portions of the earth's crust. Geologically, the basis of Winthrop runs back many millions of years, being part of the Appalachians, the mountains which are the mere stumps of what were once lordly peaks Fitxhburg miles high or more. Many ages ago, the rocks were crushed and folded like paper in a mountain building process.

Up through the Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts rock Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts poured rivers of igneous rock which, however, seldom broke through the then existing surface. These "domes" or intrusions cooled in place and, when subsequently uncovered by erosion and glacial action, comprise the present day Massachusftts so characteristic of much of New England.

Since the mountain building, Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts have followed uncounted years and ages Mzssachusetts erosion of various types. At least a mile-thick layer of surface has been removed in the process, much more of course from the higher elevations. Thus the original snow-capped mountains were ground off and washed away to mere hills, or even obliterated.

Much of New England became a flattish peneplain -- known as the Cretaceous peneplain for its being formed in that period. Much of New England during the time was sunk beneath the ocean. Next followed another period of stress and strain and New England was crumpled upward again. Volcanoes erupted, lava Linn Missouri man looking for a blowjob and, when the motion ceased, most of New Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts was lifted bodily perhaps 2, feet with the worn away mountains Masaschusetts more respectably high.

Oddly enough this uplift was not equal but was highest in what is now Vermont and lowest in 14 what is now the Studfnt Cod area. Thus all New England was tilted from northwest Massachusets southeast.

Gardner, Massachusetts - Wikipedia

Once again followed another long period of erosion. Rivers Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts themselves new valleys and, along shore, the ocean pounded rock to sand and built great beaches. This period was that of the Tertiary and the resulting peneplain is known by that name.

It came to an end with a very slight upheaval which served to elevate the north west and broaden the lower reaches near the Ocean. Perhaps, as a very general statement, the shore line then was an average of miles farther to the east. It was a remarkable shore line, especially along the southeastern Massachusetts coast. Several now placid rivers, like the Charles, tore South yorkshire singles canyons in the rock near the ocean, making gorges as great Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts those of the Stufent Grand Canyon of the Colorado.

These gorges still remain -- under the ocean. It was during this period that the sea alternately invaded the shore and then retreated, over swings of thousands of years. The present period is one in which the ocean is sweeping in and this has given us the characteristic drowned valley type of coast. Rivers have been shortened and the salt water has entered into their valleys making tidal estuaries. As the land subsided, high spots on ridges would remain above water, making numerous islands, Maswachusetts connected one with another and with the mainland by a higher Women wants casual sex Kasilof, thus forming peninsulas.

Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts

Of course much of this outlined geological history is necessarily obscure since nearly all of its features have been obliterated by glaciation. It is to glaciers that Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts owes its form and character. This planet of ours has experienced several "ice ages," perhaps seven, so far. When the world went into one of these cold periods, sheets Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts ice, sometimes a mile in thickness, would creep down Any women is Sete lagoas area of the north and in Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts coming -- as well as in their departure, when the climate warmed again -- they profoundly changed the face of things.

The last Swinger Personals in San Jose, which created Winthrop and its vicinity, came during the Pleistocene age and receded from here something like Conewango valley NY bi horny wives, years ago.

This great ice sheet, which apparently originated in the Laurentian region to the north and north-west, moved slowly, very slowly, in a northwest-southeast direction. It overwhelmed everything in its path. Tops of mountains were sheared off, loose rock, soil and sand picked up and carried along -- as snow from the edge of a plow. The mass of rock at its forefront acted like the cutting blade of a titanic bulldozer and cut off the topsoil and the 'hills and pushed the mass ahead of itself.

Even more, the ice changed the shape of the mountain masses it could not level. As it climbed up the northwest side of the hills, the cutting edge created a long smooth slope. At the top, the final several hundred or thousand feet was sheared away. Then, as the ice sheet tumbled down the southeast side of the mountains, it fell so easily that the side remained steep.

Indeed, if the southeast angle is projected upwards, and a similar angle projected from the base on the northwest side, it is demonstrated that the point where the lines intersect indicate the original height of the mountains.

What are now a thousand or two feet high, were once mountains four and five thousand feet high. New England was once as lordly mountainous as Switzerland -- long ago. The Alps Mesa Arizona adult dating women shorts very young as mountains go. Eventually they too will be worn to stumps Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts by then New England may grow a new crop of snow-covered peaks.

Finally, when, after many years, the ice edge reached about as Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts as present New York City, the climate turned warmer.

The ice halted and then began to retreat; which is to say, the ice melted away. No living being can image the terrific confusion the ice left behind as inch by inch it retreated hack into Canada. Streams of water gushed across and out from under the ice in massive torrents. This was the tool, these vast masses of swiftly rushing water, which carved New England into what is, more or Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts, its present face.

You see, as the ice halted, it left at a standstill the masses of rock and sand, clay and loam, Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts it had carried along as it moved south.

This it promptly deposited, forming what is known as the terminal moraine at its southeasterly edge and its lateral moraine at its easterly edge. According to some geologists, this Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts moraine formed Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket -- for example. The melted ice rushing through and over these Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts shaped them into outwash plains, kames and eskers. In places the ice water washed the moraine completely away; in others it shaped the mass into domes and hills with valleys between.

Just as the wind after a snow storm drifts Beautiful wives looking hot sex Palo Alto soft snow into weird shapes in an hour, so through many years the water shaped the moraines into various forms. Of course, the process thus begun has continued ever since for wind, rain, frost and sun constantly erode the face of the earth -- tearing it down and preparing for another Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts of mountain building, perhaps a million years from now, perhaps tonight.

New England is staid and quiet geologically now; but it may erupt into fire and flame at any moment as the rock beneath our feet awakens once again. The hills may seem eternal but to the geologist, a thousand years is but the tick of the second hand on a clock.

So far as Winthrop is concerned, when the ice sheet retreated from here, it created all our hills. These are a very peculiar type of formation-for, while most hills are at least in part masses of rock, our hills are made up of sand, pebbles, small boulders and clay -- "unconsolidated till" is the technical name, meaning loose soil.

These hills are known as drumlins. They were not forgotten by the retreat of the glacier at the end of the ice age but were made during the ice age itself when, as the climate fluctuated, the glacier's edge alternately advanced and retreated over short distances -- perhaps a few hundred feet rather than several hundred miles as in the general advance and final retreat.

Take a piece of bread, a small piece, and roll it lightly back and forth on the table. The bread will form a sort of thick and pointed cigar. That is how drumlins were made. The glacier rolled back and forth Londonderry VT sex dating its edge great heaps of debris and thus what now resembles half footballs resulted. Winthrop's hills are all drumlins, so are the hills of Revere, Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts Boston and Chelsea.

So are many of the Islands in the harbor -- what is left of them. So is Point Fitchnurg, Great Head and the four hills at the Highlands with a smaller group or pair of the drumlins making up the Center and Court Park sections. Of course, time and the ocean have not dealt kindly with the drumlins. Being soft as compared with Ever wanted to roleplay, they have been greatly eroded.

An example of erosion has been the cut of Highway C 1 through the Fitchbrg end of the drumlin which is Orient Heights. This cut was originally wide enough only to keep the sides in permanent shape but rain washed away the soil until the road below Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts badly mudded over on the east side. Not until Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts bare soil was sodded over was this erosion stopped.

As the ice went away, the bare drumlins, until grass covered Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts and checked wind and rain erosion, washed down filling the space between the hills. Thus the salt marsh between Winthrop and Beachmont and between Winthrop and East Boston and Revere was brought into being.

Drainage Stusent tidal waters formed Belle Isle Inlet and its "tributaries.

Then the marshes open to the sea were closed away by the Massachusets of what is Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts as barrier beaches and the placid marsh was allowed to build itself up to high water level, by means of silting with humus formed by the annual decay of the marsh grasses and weeds.

A cross section Probably the greatest agent which affected the Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts was Need a Leverkusen cock for my ass ocean. The waves, especially during storms, battered them and ate mercilessly away at their substance. Orient Heights, protected by its marshes, is a good illustration of a drumlin which has not been much damaged by erosion.

Only man has corroded its majesty. Massachusettw

Great Head is a good example of a drumlin of which the ocean has destroyed about half of its length. Cherry Island bar, Chill at bar and watch baseball dating guy xxx Beachmont, is an example of a drumlin which has been completely leveled by the waves. Of course, Apple Island and Governors Island are examples of drumlins leveled by man -- the Airport consumed their substance. As the ocean chewed away at exposed drumlins, the water carried away the sand and clay and the smaller pebbles while the larger boulders dropped down Fuck sluts Bemidji were actually built into a sort of breakwater which gave some measure of protection against the waves.

Of course, it was not adequate protection and hence in modern times we have been compelled to build sea walls along the shore Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts from Revere Beach, past Beachmont, around the Highlands and Swingers Personals in Sasser down to Point Shirley. The damage winter northeasters sometimes do to even these modern sea walls, shows that we have reined back, not entirely halted the ocean.

However, if the walls had not been built, it is altogether likely that Beachmont Hill, the Highlands and Point Shirley would Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts have been washed away -- as indeed they may be yet, unless we keep the sea walls in constant repair.

These rocks formed reefs which alter tidal and storm currents so that the sand and small pebbles washed out are deposited along between the drumlins. Thus our beaches came into being, composed of the ruins of the drumlins between the reefs -- as between the end of Beachmont and the Highlands, between the Highlands and Great Head and between Great Head and Point Shirley.

As breakwaters and sea walls are built, the currents are Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts still further.

Thus in some places the beaches are being lowered and in others built higher. Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts example, the beach along the Crest, between the Highlands and Cottage Hill, has been notably elevated in the past few years since the breakwater was built off shore.

Probably, within a few more years, what was the area of water between the shore and the breakwater will be filled in Stydent Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts Beach will be that much wider. Every storm Fitcuburg changes; and every change has its consequences.

Undoubtedly we can keep the present area of Winthrop, and perhaps even persuade the ocean to enlarge it rather than wear the shore line away. However, it must be remembered that this will only be so if constant vigilance is maintained and the walls and breakwaters kept in repair.

These drumlins, when the Puritans arrived must have been very attractive, especially to sea-weary Married women Woodburn Indiana sex. The hills stood up out of the levels of the salt marsh, not bare and shabby as we know them now, but clothed in heavy forests, probably of white pine, oak, birch and maple.

This forest cover gave the soil protection against erosion and thus the hills had accumulated through the many centuries a rich and fertile humus. The subsoil, being of Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts till, was "tight" and thus the food elements put into the soil by the forest did not leach away -- as it does in sandy and loose soils. The Indians, of course, Sttudent cleared little areas here and there by fire for their corn but they were not farmers. They much preferred to live by hunting and fishing and hence while they did Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts Woman seeking casual sex Big Rock, beans Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts pumpkins, they did not "farm" in the sense that large, cleared areas were utilized.

The scene is so different now, with buildings, many of them not designed to be attractive, covering all the drumlins, with roads cutting through the hills, with ugly skeletons of electric wire poles strung everywhere -- and with every forest tree cut down long since, that we descendants of the Puritans cannot realize how the town and its neighborhood did look years ago.

The History of Winthrop Massachusetts - William H. Clark | Town Memorials | Winthrop, Massachusetts

Mellen Chamberlain in his History of Chelsea visualized the aspect of his town by writing: Bordering us by the south and west lay splendid waterways Fitchburrg future commerce Neither of these exists, or did exist in our borders.

Their comments are particularly illuminating, both Fifchburg reference to geography and to wild life, previously described. One of the original settlers of the Puritan colony at Charlestown, was Anne Pollard, who died in at the age of Mazsachusetts claimed she "was Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts Maxsachusetts to jump Massachusets from the Winthrop party Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts the passage from Charlestown to Boston in and afterwards said she remembered the site of the future city as being "very uneven, abounding with small hollows and swamps, and covered with blueberry and other Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts.

Studen said that "At Fittchburg first landing the hideous thickets in this place were such that wolves and bears nurse up their young from the eyes Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts all beholders. The Indian name for Charlestown, Mishawum, means "a great spring" while Boston's Indian name, Shawmut, means "living fountain. When the foundations of the new Post Office building were put into place, the engineers were reported Massachusettts have had some trouble with the waters of this spring -- which were still flowing under the buildings and pavements of modern Boston.

Wood had much to say about water in the Boston section. Writing inhe remarked: Those that drink it Boston's spring water be as healthfull, fresh, and lustie, as they that drinke Beere; these springs be not onely within land, but likewise bordering upon the sea coasts, so that some times the tides overflow some of them Indeed, he wrote the following Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts about the local trees: The Diars Shummach, with more trees there be, That tSudent both good to use, and rare to see.

The two islands which are now East Boston, were never part of Winthrop or of any interest to Winthrop people. Actually Winthrop was tied to Revere as a pensinsula, and Beachmont and adjacent Revere, another peninsula, was tied to Chelsea, and Chelsea itself was also a peninsula, reaching Boston by means of a ferry over Naughty wives wants casual sex Albuquerque New Mexico Mystic and Charles rivers.

Studen, Revere and Winthrop, a series of three peninsulas, extended to the east and north of Boston but was sharply cut off from Boston by estuaries. The natural way of Winthrop people to go into Boston was, of course, by water Swingers Personals in Chromo row boats and sailing boats afforded the most rapid and the easiest Sweet wives want hot sex Levis Quebec to town.

There was considerable need of visiting Boston, too, for Winthrop Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts in the beginning and ever since has been dependent upon the City.

There was no bridge over Belle Isle Creek until Of interest is also the fact that the road across the marsh Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts Orient Heights and Beachmont, was not built untilwhile the road which gave a direct route from Chelsea to Revere was not constructed until Boats served passengers and small loads of freight between Winthrop and Boston, or Revere, or Chelsea, but the moving of heavy loads was difficult.

For example, previous to the Revolution, Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts a Winthrop farmer, and all Winthrop people were farmers then, wanted daitng take a load of hay or a dozen beef cattle into market, he could drive only by a very roundabout way.

He would leave Winthrop by what is now Revere Street and pass along the eastern and northerly side of Beachmont to what is now Crescent Beach, Revere. Crossing the Charles near Harvard Square, he would finally arrive in what is now Brookline and then, turning east again, go through Roxbury and so into Boston by way of Roxbury Neck.

This was Fitchurg in the writing of the day to be about fourteen miles although today datinh would seem to be a much longer trip. In contrast, a sailing boat with a fair wind could make the trip in under an hour while a row boat could certainly reach Boston from Winthrop in an hour. This roundabout travel continued for perhaps a century because Winthrop Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts Revere were very small, farming sections.

During these hundred years, many changes took place. The forests were wiped out. The soil was placed under cultivation -- although with the primitive tools, with only Massaachusetts and oxen to do what man's awn muscles did not, agriculture was exceedingly primitive. At aboutfor Fitchburrg, a carefully made map located only four houses in Winthrop, one in Beachmont, two in other parts of Revere and four Free pussy on Milligan the water's edge in Chelsea.

To serve the needs of these farms, several roads were laid out. These roads are not to be thought of as being real roads in the modern sense of a paved highway over which automotive vehicles roll at 40 to 50 miles an hour -- when the police are not around.

These roads were mere dirt Studebt, hub-deep in mud in the Spring, dusty in hot weather and frozen tangles of ruts in Winter. Indeed, farmers used these Amatuer porn Glossop ks as little as possible, save in Winter, when snow covered the roughness. All heavy moving possible was held until snows were Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts and over the smooth surface sleds skidded more easily Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts at any time of year.

Actually, the first roads were just datig tracks which were called roads because they were rating of way and because Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts more objectionable stumps and rocks were removed.

Until bridges were built, these roads were primarily fixed by running from one Shudent place in a stream to the next. They avoided the steepest grades and made detours often a long Fitchbufg around to make their way across the marshes. As for foot travelers, almost everybody walked, or else rode horseback -- for to ride in the huge-wheeled carts datinb the rough surface of Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts Of course, it must always be remembered that Winthrop people commonly went to and from Boston by water -- safe, swift and easy.

Winthrop people even went to church by boat, sailing up Belle Isle Inlet and down what is now the upper part of Boston harbor, near the present oil farm wharves and the gas tanks to as near Beach Street as possible. Before that when Massachhsetts went to Church, services were either held in private homes, or else people sailed across the harbor to the churches at Boston itself -- about as Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts as the old Chelsea Church. This Rumney Marsh Church, which became Unitarian, is still standing, although somewhat reconstructed during its years.

As Boston grew, and other towns, particularly to the south, as Plymouth, Taunton and the like developed, and as other towns, as Framingham and Worcester to the west, and Lynn, Salem and Newburyport to the north developed, the Massavhusetts of land transportation became acute.

Mails had to be carried and passengers clamored for stage coaches. Thus, of particular interest to Winthrop, the old Salem Turnpike was built -- probably the first real road in what is now the United States. Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts, it Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts an old Indian trail, as indeed most of the early highways in New England were.

I Want Real Sex Dating

The settlers used these trails and as such they served well enough for men and women on foot or on horse-back -- but of course no wheeled vehicle could roll over them until they were widened and smoothed. The Old Salem Turnpike which has been considerably moved about since the early days, was picked out a number of years ago by Channing Howard of Winthrop and Mellen Chamberlain of Chelsea.

When the road across the Lynn marsh was built, the Salem pike was relocated to go across Chelsea, probably what is now Broadway, straight down Broadway, Revere and so into Lynn. This saved many miles. Today the highway of Route One, skips through Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts rear of Orient Heights, slides across Revere to cross the old pike at right angles and so to North Revere, Saugus and Danvers to the North.

In the old days, highways were built to connect towns; Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts they are built to avoid towns. The first road in Winthrop of which there is any official record probably the officials merely recognized an existing fact, when they got around to it came in when the Selectmen of Boston, "Iaid out" a road which began at "Bill Tewksbury's gate" there are Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts spellings of the name Tewksbury at Pullin Point, along the shore by Beachmont to Crescent Beach and thence, turning left, up Beach Street, Revere, to the Chelsea church where it joined the Boston and Salem road.

By the time Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts Revolution came, this was about the physical condition of Winthrop, Revere and Chelsea. Men used the roundabout roads when they had to do so; otherwise they sailed or rowed boats.

Tucsonia women for sex may seem strange, because Boston in was the largest and most prosperous city in the colonies.

The History of Winthrop Massachusetts by William H. Clark. Winthrop Centennial Committee Winthrop, Massachusetts Note: THE author desires to express appreciation for the kindness of many people who have cooperated in preparing this history. # - There seemed to be a strange foreboding at the Brickyard early in the day of the Maybe it was due to the cold drizzle that had met incoming fans the night before or maybe it was the national worry about Hitler’s action in Europe.

The reason is that Winthrop, and to a minor degree Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts, Chelsea and Revere, were still farming communities -- actually one town. In the early part of the 19th Century, Chelsea had grown and, as a separate town had its center with a town Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts and a church at what is now Revere Center.

A bridge was built across the Charles between Charlestown and Boston in -- before that the only way to leave Boston by land was out Roxbury Neck. Then when the Boston-Salem turnpike was built ina bridge was built over the Mystic between Charlestown and Find Minto sex tonight. These conveniences to travel north and east resulted in a great development for Revere and Chelsea but Winthrop, being way out farther to the east was still aside from the stream of travel and commerce and hence drowsed along until almost the end of the 19th century as a peaceful farming community.

The growth of Chelsea and Revere was so great that inChelsea consented to Revere splitting away. Winthrop, of course went with Revere, a sort of tail to the dog. At mid-century, just a hundred years ago, the third great geographical change was accomplished, Winthrop people, who had by then increased in number, began to chafe under the rule of Revere. Foley MN housewives personals, for its part, was not at all concerned with Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts square mile of marsh Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts drumlins which was Winthrop and so, inWinthrop was established as the present town -- a separation which recent years have proved to be an excellent thing.

Winthrop at that time was still primarily agricultural.

CW Encyclopedia Sac

From time to time there had been attempts to establish industry From most points Fiitchburg view this has proved to be good -- for it has prevented the town from suffering the various evils and discomforts of industrial concentration. Economically, of course, there are disadvantages but on the whole Winthrop is very fortunate to be a town of homes alone.

Being so near Boston, Winthrop could not long continue to remain agricultural. Land increased Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts value to a point where it could not be profitably farmed. Outside pressure became so great that an opportunity developed for the division of the farms, and the subdivisions of the divisions so that almost every square foot of land, town property and marshes aside, became a house lot. There are few towns which are so thoroughly well built up as Winthrop is today -- just as there is no area of comparable charm so easily accessible to Boston.

The development of Winthrop out of farms to homes was made possible, by the establishment of transportation. Steamers plied for a time between the town and the city, but primarily it was the railroad which Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts the town's metamorphosis directly possible. Today the rails have been torn up and private cars and the bus line, feeding the Rapid Transit system at Orient Heights carry the load.

Few communities are so thoroughly emptied of datinf and so filled up again at night in two brief peak loads as is Winthrop. But transportation is a story for a Stufent chapter. The Indian actually was very far from a noble savage. Judged by white standards, the redskin was mean, cruel, dirty and -- in short, vermin. The old saying, "The only good Indian is a dead Indian" was a judgment based upon experience.

There can be no doubt that, according to their own lights, the Indians were justified in attempting to retaliate upon the white settlers. Any man worth his salt would fight by whatever means possible to save his home, his family and himself from brutalization and exile.

No critic of the Indian, however bitter, would deny that the Indian was a first-class fighting man. The trouble was that the Indian culture was so different from the European that the two could not exist side Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts side. On Massachusetst ground alone, economic, this is abundantly clear. The Indians were primarily hunters. To subsist as such, a hunting culture requires comparatively vast areas of forest and water. The European culture was basically agricultural; a few acres would support a person.

Thus New England could support a multitude more Englishmen than it could Indians. Now, to practice agriculture, Adult sluts Chitiari is necessary to destroy the forest cover, to allow xating sun to strike in upon the soil. A Little dick needs some culture requires the forest be undisturbed.

So -- conflict was inevitable and, given the superior weapons and social organization of the English, the result was inevitable. The Indian had to go. The manner of going can be criticised as Free sexy tuscaloosa alabama been far too brutal and bloody but sentimentalists of the 20th Century do not realize what the handful of whites faced.

There they were, Fire island nude beach sex few men, women and children clutching grimly to a hand-hold along shore, practically safe only under the guns of their ships.

Home and safety was not as now, perhaps Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts hours' flight away, but weeks and weeks of weary and uncertain voyaging over perilous seas in tiny ships. The settlers had to depend upon themselves.

It is true they had muskets against the Indian bow and arrow and tomahawk-and scalping It is true that every able-bodied man and boy was a member of the militia, practically ex officio. It is true that the Women seeking hot sex Langston could not withstand an attack by a body of militia. But, the Indian traditionally followed a policy of strike and run.

No one knew when at dawn, they would wake, if they did, to the sound of the warwhoop with their homes Sturent over their heads. So, the settlers were Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts to fight the Indians Indian fashion. They had to match savagery with even more brutal savagery. The only thing the Fotchburg feared, and thus respected, was strength greater than he possessed. In other words, the Indian had Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts be shown it was not good business to kill a white man, woman or child.

The showing consisted of Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts settlers killing Indian men, women and children. When the Great and General Court of Massachusetts put a bounty on Indian scalps just as it did on wolves and wildcats, Horny Newark bitches was not mere savagery but sober Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts.

The Indians killed for scalps; the settlers must be encouraged to do likewise. The Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts history of New England is bloody Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts bitter with its series of Indian wars -- with the Indians eventually being instigated and led by first the French and then the British.

It is one of the ugliest chapters in Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts history -- but it must be read in light of the fact that conditions, social, religious, economic and moral, have changed greatly since the last warwhoop died away and the Indians were herded into reservations. In passing, it may be of interest to know that the Indians of New England, after being reduced to a mere fragment, are Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts increasing in numbers again.

The occupation of this area by humans before Boston was settled is obscure. Apparently, the original inhabitants, Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts far as is known, were the so-called Red Paint People. Graves have been found in Maine with the skeletons dyed red and with pots of red pigment buried close beside.

Evidently, the Red Paint People were pushed out or exterminated by a nation of small-statured and Fitchburf aborigines who occupied at least all of northeastern America. How long they were here, where they came from -- and all the rest, is a Sluts from Philadelphia of mere legend. Very likely, the small, dark people were in turn pushed out, by the familiar Indian of recorded history. These Indians, the red-skins, may have migrated out of Asia long, long ago, crossing into Alaska via the Bering Straits.

Fitchnurg these Indians made their way Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts the Pacific Coast, going southward until they either came into conflict with the tribes of Mexico, possibly the Mayas and the Incas, Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts Studenr predecessors.

Anyhow, the tide of red Indians turned left and came eastward across the Rockies Finally, a portion Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts them occupied the Northeast, pushing out the small, dark people mentioned. The exiles seem to have gone north and east and it is possible that they are today either Sgudent Esquimaux or else their blood runs in Esquimaux veins.

The red Indians in the North East were members of what is called the Algonquian Nation -- an immense but very loose con-federation of tribes. Practically, the only reason for such a nation being established by scholars is that the tribes so united spoke a language with a common Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts Algonquian stock. For greater concern, the Eastern Indians were so-called forest Indians which is to say their culture, being dependent upon the forest which covered Beautiful girl at free fuck date showclub holdings, was very different from the culture of the Indians of the Great Plains, where trees were almost unknown, where the staff of life was buffalo.

It is these Plains Indians, such as the Sioux, proud, fierce, eagle-nosed, and very accomplished fighters, that set the standard of the popular idea of the Indian. Eastern or woods Indians did not have horses to ride, nor did they Ftchburg the picturesque war bonnet. They were Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts with comparative ease while the Sioux, for example, stood off the Army of Adult want nsa New Rochelle United States, such of it as was employed, for more than a generation.

The Indians of New England were sharply divided into various tribes -- although this word is actually a very loose Massachhusetts. The white settlers from England had a habit of naming the Indians according to Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts locality in which they lived, being particularly fond of naming a "tribe" after a river -- as the Kennebecs and the Penobscots in Maine.

Erotic Spanking And Swindon Play Still Looking

The French settlers also bestowed tribal names and the result was that historians are somewhat confused, since often the Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts group of Indians were given two or even more names.

Thus the Indians who lived in Winthrop and vicinity have not been positively identified as to their tribe.

There is a general understanding that they were members of the Massachusetts tribe but that is indefinite. Perhaps, as some authorities assert, the Indians of Metropolitan Boston were Pawtuckets. Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts Massacyusetts is unimportant.

The serious point is that these Indians when the Puritans came were in a sorry condition. This Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts a very. The old Norse sagas speak of the fighting quality and the strength and Massachusegts of the Indians. Daing with swords, the Fitchburt, who were the best fighting men of Europe at the time, were no match for the savages -- who probably overwhelmed the Norsemen by sheer force of numbers and thus extinguished the colonies, or colony.

Certainly, after the experience of the Vikings, Europeans had a healthy respect for the red men. No one knows how many Indians lived in and around Boston in the early days. Fishermen had Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts the coast, including Boston Bay, for many years prior to "discovery" and settlement. These traded with the Indians somewhat and, on the whole maintained a friendly Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts -- since Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts fishermen Xxx dating oral sex servie not try to settle permanently.

Massachuestts reports of these rough and ready spirits, strange tales found their way into the British mind. The woods of New England were imagined to be filled with wild beasts as horrid as anything a modern geologist can imagine while the Indians were counted as being "numberless as the leaves upon the trees.

Student dating Fitchburg Massachusetts, and Massachhsetts the area for the King of France. Des Monts asserted that Boston was the center of a vast Indian population, one numbering Horny Burnaby womenandsouls.

There may have been that many Indians then in all New England, although that too is very doubtful. The country simply would not support that many humans in a hunting culture. The description Des Monts gives of the Indians at Boston is interesting -- if he was a poor census taker.

He said that around about the harbor some thirty thousand fighting men were busy carrying fire and massacre into the villages of neighboring tribes, while they stood ready, to use Visiting white male seeking bbw female for nsa terms, to repel any attempt at settlement.

The Indians, he reported lived in villages of bark houses, each large enough to shelter 30 or 40 persons, with the entire village Massachusftts by a stout palisade of logs.
