Fact of the Day: Three Mountains

In it's early days, European settlers once called what is now Boston, Massachusetts "Trimountaine" meaning "three mountains". The three mountains were actually prominent hills, two of which were leveled out when the city became modernized.

  8. The things people do for modernization. It would've been nice to keep the hills, I think, but then again, I'm not a city planner:P
