Charlestown, Massachusetts, named for King Charles I, was settled by English colonists in 1628 and was located on a peninsula known as "Mishawum" by the Native Americans.
On January 1, 1874 Charlestown was officially annexed to the City of Boston and its landscape changed drastically with the advent of the elevated streetcar or the "El" in the early 20th century.
