Reason for Founding
New England was founded for 3 reasons. One,people from England did not want to believe the Church of England. They were called Separatists or Pilgrims. They created Plymouth to seek Religious Freedom. Second, people from England wanted to "purify" the Church of England. These people were called Puritans. They were strict of what they wore, how they talked, and what they believed. The final reason was that people believed they should have religious tolerance. They got kicked out of Massachusetts Colony (where the puritans lived) and created their own colony , Rhode Island, where they could practice religion freely.
In New England, there is a lot of premier educational institute and Ivy League colleges such as Harvard, Brown, MIT, and Yale. These colleges have world famous faculties and provide top notch education and learning experience. These schools lead in research and innovation. The puritans believed that education was the most important thing after religion and established world class education like Harvard.

One of the most peaceful places I’ve ever visited and certainly one of my most favourite to shoot at, the Sugar Pine Walk never fails to impress."
