First settled in 1629, the town of Saugus lies at the southern end of Essex County Saugus, just 13 miles North of the City of Boston. The Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site, in operation from 1646-1668, was the first integrated iron works in North America. This Massachusetts site is nationally signi´Čücant because it is considered the birthplace of industry in Colonial America, initiating and sustaining an advanced iron making technology in the New World. The subsequent dispersal of workers and their descendants to other parts of Colonial America, where they established other iron producing centers, was critical to the development of industry and technology in the emerging country.
