Native Americans at Passanageset

For over 10,000 years, people have lived in what is now called Massachusetts. Once the last glacier retreated and the land and climate stabilized, people settled permanently here. A place like Passanageset, with rivers, the ocean, uplands, and quarries all close by, was as desirable a place to settle then as it is today.
Passanageset Park at Broad Meadows Marsh celebrates the First People who settled here; their descendants, the Massachusett; and the wealth of natural resources Passanageset has provided for thousands of years.
