Where is Somerville, Massachusetts, USA? 

Somerville, Middlesex, Massachusetts, USA
Somerville was first settled in 1630 as part of Charlestown. It was known as "Charlestown beyond the Neck" because it was part of the Massachusetts mainland, not the Charlestown Peninsula. Charlestown Neck was a narrow strip of land that joined the two places. In 1842, the incorporation of Somerville separated the largely rural town from the urbanizing Charlestown.wikipedia
