where to begin PA or MA

Written on April 21, 2008 by mimecine

images.jpegimages-1.jpegWhere did our great country begin Pennsylvania or Massachusetts? We are starting work on an American collection and are trying to decide our kick-off state. Opinions would be appreciated!

    I’d have to say Massachusetts. The Boston Tea Party, Lexington & Concord (Paul Revere), the Constitution, BEER.

    As a Massachusetts native I have to concur. Some of the oldest settlements in the country started as tent cities there more than 100 years before the Boston Tea Party and they’re still up and running. Pennsylvania aside, don’t let anyone from Virginia try to distract you on this point. MASS is where it’s AT.

    Apparently, the oldest city is in Florida. Saint Augustine, FL. As a person born and raised in MA, I was sad to discover this. It’s kind of a cool town, though, with really weird architecture. Go to Martha’s Vineyard to see the gingerbread houses in Oak Bluffs (began as a tent camp and evolved into wonderful tiny houses) and the wampum bracelets made by the first nations people in Gay Head (and Kate Taylor, sister of Sweet Baby James). I just found your shop today and think it’s lovely.

    when you do PA you need to hit Route 30 between Gap PA and Lancaster PA. It has recently seen a proliferation of Outlet malls, but the surviving PA “dutchsploitation” is something to behold. If you hit it in the summer time you can even catch the annual Kinzer’s thresherman reunion where people drag out all their old original farm equipment. Steam powered tractors and internal combustion engine tractors referred to as ” oil pulls”. man, there’s so much americana in southeastern PA it may kindle some optomism. Don’t forget to check out the vast variety of Shoo fly pie manufacturing as well…
