What was the first colony founded?

Massachusetts was the first colony founded

The first English colony in North America was the Colony of Roanoke, founded in 1585 by Sir Walter Raleigh, in present-day North Carolina, under the blessing of Queen Elizabeth I. This was an unsuccessful settlement, also called "the Lost Colony." The first English settler born in the New World, Virginia Dare, was part of this community.

The first successful English colony was Jamestown, Virginia, founded in 1607, sponsored by the Virginia Company of London and named after King James I of England.

Plymouth, Massachusetts was the third English settlement (second successful), founded in 1620 by the Pilgrims.

The first European settlers of the present-day United States were the Spanish, who established Pensacola, Florida in 1559, making it the first Europeansettlement.

The Spanish also founded Saint Augustine, Florida in 1565. Since Pensacola was destroyed and later reestablished, Saint Augustine is the oldest, continuous European settlement in the United States.

What city in the US has the longest name?

El Pueblo de la Reina de Los Angeles the full name of Los Angeles

La Villa Real de la Santa Fe de San Francisco de Asis, the full name of Santa Fe

LA does indeed hold claim to the longest city name in the United States. The full name of Los Angeles as it was founded September 4, 1781, by Spanish governor Felipe de Neve is: El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles de la Porciúncula(The Village of Our Lady, the Queen of the Angels of Porziuncola). There is some question about the legitimacy of this name, which may have, through a series of misinterpretations and inflations, been corrupted from the actual name authorized in writing in 1781, "La Reina de Los Angeles". Cf. Theodore E. Treutlein, "Los Angeles, California: The Question of the City's Original Spanish Name," Southern California Quarterly 55, no. 1 (Spring 1973): 1-7.

Historian Doyce B. Nunis, Jr., has traced the longer name to the histories written by the Franciscan missionaries, especially Francisco Palóu, who wished to play up the region's connections to their order. Pool, Bob, "City of Angels' First Name Still Bedevils Historians." Los Angeles Times (March 26, 2005), Sec. A-1.
