Parker Brothers Salem, Massachusetts

Growing up I loved games and saved my weekly allowance to collect them all.  From Milton Bradley to Parker Brothers, if it was a game, it seemed like it was in our house.

The Parker Brothers company began in Salem, Massachusetts, just north of Boston.  The company was founded by George S. Parker in 1883.  In 1888, George's brother joined the company giving it it's new name, Parker Brothers.

Parker Brothers went on to create the most famous of all board games, Monopoly.  The company had a long, successful run creating beloved board games and puzzles.


The company is currently a subsidiary of the toy company, Hasbro, another New England company.
