Like many cities in New England, Worcester (pronounced “Wuh-ster”) has a long and storied history. On July 14th, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was read aloud in public for the first time ever on the steps of Worcester City Hall. This was not because Worcester was a place of particular prominence among the original 13 states. Instead, the Declaration was intercepted by a local journalist on its way to Boston from Philadelphia.
Worcester grew during the industrial revolution as a center of the textile industry. Today, Worcester is reinventing itself as a center for technology and higher education in Central Massachusetts.
