Why did many rural new englanders hate the idea of America becoming an industrial nation?

New Englanders have always loved nature in the olden days and today. New Englanders feel they are more likely to make money by growing their own produce. They don't like skyscrapers. Even in Boston many of the buildings are small, in addition Boston grows much of it's produce. Not to say New England is stuck in the past. New Englanders are very advanced, but prefer their historical culture instead of industry like China. New England also makes Lot's of money growing produce, and preserving their natural landscape. Other areas in the USA could be like New England. Many areas including the southeastern/western USA have become more reliable on other none green jobs, which don't make as much money as New England. By the way I'm not a hippie. New Englanders also get Lot's of money through fishing, education, and medical surfaces.
