History of Cambridge MA:
"The site for what would become Cambridge was chosen in Dec 1630, because it was located safely up river from Boston Harbor, which made it easily defensible from attacks by enemy ships. Also, the water from the local spring was so good that the local Natives believed it had medicinal properties.
The first houses were built in the spring of 1631. The settlement was initially referred to as "the newe towne". Official MA records show the name was capitalized as "Newe Towne" by 1632."
