Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, USA*

Jamaica Plain, Suffolk, MA

Shortly after the founding of Boston and Roxbury in 1630, William Heath's family and three others settled on land just south of Parker Hill in what is now Jamaica Plain.

In the late 17th century, the name "Jamaica" first appears for the area of Roxbury between Stony Brook and the Great Pond. There are a number of theories regarding the origin of the name "Jamaica Plain". A well-known theory traces the origin to "Jamaica rum", a reference to Jamaican cane sugar's role in the Triangle Trade of sugar, rum, and slaves.

Jamaica Plain includes: Forest Hills, Heath Street, Morton Street Station, and Stoney Brook.
