Here is an ugly workaround:
Force a carriage return at the end of the line.
Create a layer over the existing one.
Put a small text frame on the new layer, type the word, and fiddle with the
placement until it looks right.

TeX, which is not wysiwyg has a simpler solution:
\hbox{Massachusetts}

However this would probably force the word onto the next line.

The only place I can see where one would find it necessary to suppress
automated hyphenation would be at the end of a page.
