The colony of Plymouth Rock was the first permanent settlement in New England, and began in 1620. It is located in the province of cape cod and was colonized by the explorer John Smith
Before the Europeans came, the land belonged to Native Americans, specifically the tribe Pawtuxet. The Europeans decided to settle here due to repressive policies about religion from their ruler Charles I. They were seeking religious freedom by living on their own
