Thomas Morton, the first English person to build a plantation, known as Mar-e-Mount, on Massachusetts Bay in 1624, operated a successful trading post. On May Day, 1627, he erected a Maypole. The site is commemorated on the City’s Seal. Shown with a large tree on it, a historical marker notes the location, and its remains can be seen at the Quincy History Museum.
