People, Pictures and News From the Past

Where is Northampton, Massachusetts, USA ? 

Northampton, Hampshire, Massachusetts, USA
The area now called Northampton was once known as Norwottuck, or Nonotuck, meaning "the midst of the river" by its original Pocumtuc inhabitants. According to various accounts, Northampton was named by John King (1629–1703), one of its original settlers, or possibly in King's honor, since it is supposed that he came to Massachusetts from Northampton, England.
