Sites about local Somerville, Massachusetts society and culture. Somerville society is a mixture of blue-collar working class families with more affluent families and technology workers from the expansion of Boston and Cambridge. There is a large and diverse immigrant community, including many Haitians and Indians, while the older families tend to Irish and Italian origins. Religion is varied, but more heavily Catholic than many communities in the state. Politics tend to be conservative Democratic, becoming more socially liberal with the Cambridge influx.
