The Ivy League was created as an agreement between the component schools. Therefore, they all became Ivies at once and there is no 'first' Ivy. However, of the schools that we now call the Ivies, Harvard was founded first in 1636. It is located in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
There are different stories as to how the Ivy League name originated. Some believe it is a mispronunciation of IV League (the Roman numeral of four, referring to the first four schools in the athletic league: Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Dartmouth.)

Either way, the Ivy League is made up of eight prestigious schools: Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Cornell, Columbia University, Dartmouth College, Brown University and The University of Pennsylvania.
