Entering Charlestown

Scott saw some of my other Entering signs online and asked if I had ever done one for Charlestown,MA. I hadn't. After a little research, I discovered that Charlestown does not have its own sign since it is considered a "neighborhood" of Boston. After a little more digging, I found that Charlestown had been a town in 1628 before being annexed in to Boston, so I mocked up the sign using 1628 as the date. In the background you can see the Bunker Hill monument as well as the USS Constitution (Old Ironsides) both of which are iconic landmarks in the town.
