Old Connecticut Path History

The old Connecticut Path was created by Native Americans in antiquity.  It was the first North American trail that led west from settlements on the Atlantic seacoast into the interior of America.

The Path was used by members of the Massachusetts Bay Colony as early as 1630.  It continued to be used as settlements in Connecticut and other interior locations were settled.

Over the years, settlements like Cambridge, Watertown, Waltham and Weston were established along the path as it winds its way toward South Framingham, Hopkinton, Grafton and westward to Westborough and Woodstock, Connecticut. [1] [2]
