Cambridge, Massachusetts is situated in Middlesex County and located within the Greater Boston Area. The city was named in honor of the University of Cambridge within England, which was a vital center of the Puritan theology which was embraced by the town's founding citizens. An inhabitant of the city of Cambridge is affectionately called a "Cantabrigian."

Two of the world's most prominent universities, Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are located within Cambridge. In the year 2010, the population of the city was 105,162 based on the U.S. Census, making it the 5th most heavily populated city in the state of Massachusetts behind Boston, Worcester, Lowell and Springfield. Lowell is one county seat of Middlesex County and Cambridge is the other.

The region was settled during the year 1630 by a group of Puritan settlers from England. Originally, the region was named "Newtowne." Harvard College, established facilities in 1636, that prompted the move to a more appropriate and new name. "Cambridge" was chosen as the formal name because of the familiarity which many of the settlers had with Cambridge University within England. During the year 1636, the township was incorporated and during the year 1846 it became a city after the first township of Old Cambridge merged with two villages East Cambridge and Cambridge Port.

In the late 19th and early part of the 20th centuries, the city had a major industrial focus mainly centered on factories such as glass and furniture businesses.

Most of the tech companies within the region over the years, have had to relocate or move and sometimes even shut down their companies due to the declines and growths of the technology marketplace.
