by | ALL AROUND, Places to visit | 0 comments

The Northeastern United States is home to some of the earliest history in our country, the birthplace of American democracy. Having rich resources, lush forests, abundant fishing & fertile farmland, the area led the country’s development in the early years.

Heavy industry spawned the formation of some of the most populous cities & drew immigrants from many countries. It produced some of the country’s oldest & most prestigious universities. Today, New York is the world’s foremost financial center.

Included here on my blog, is a small offering of the historic house museums that you can see in the area. They represent homes & history in the states of New York, Maryland & Massachusetts & Maine.
