Where is Hadley, Massachusetts, USA? 

Hadley, Hampshire, Massachusetts, USA
Hadley was first settled in 1659 and was officially incorporated in 1661. Its settlers were primarily a discontented group of families from the puritan colonies of Hartford and Wethersfield, Connecticut, who petitioned to start a new colony up north after some controversy over doctrine in the local church.
