More About Belmont, Massachusetts

History

The town of Belmont was established on March 18, 1859, after a long tussle between inhabitants of Waterfall, Waltham, and West Cambridge who fought against the creation of a new town. The town presently called Belmont is part of these three towns.

It was named after John Perkin Cushin’s estate “Bellmont.” John Perkin Cushin was the highest taxpayer, sponsor, and advocating champion for the cause of creating a new town. Settlement in the area that presently includes Belmont started in 1630 when 40 families, including Sir Richard Saltonstall, migrated from Massachusetts Bay colony to start an agricultural community.

The settlement extended to surrounding towns presently called Watertown, Waltham, Weston, Lincoln, and parts of Cambridge. In 1843, Federick Tudor built a railroad that was extended to Waltham, and the line ran through the area now called Belmont. Belmont was an agricultural town known for its vast cultivation of fruit farms and gardens. Produce from Belmont farms were distributed to neighboring towns.

With easy access to the town through the railway and bountiful agricultural produce, Belmont MA developed. In the 1900s, its population multiplied with the influx of politicians, educators, scientists, and artists. This led to the phasing out of the farming community, and Belmont today is almost entirely residential.

What to see or do in Belmont, MA

Some of the sites explored by the first settlers in Belmont still stand to this day. The fresh pond is a park and reservoir in Belmont. In 1805, Federick Tudor began harvesting ice on fresh pond for shipment to other cities. Mount Auburn Cemetery is the first garden cemetery in the United States.

It was dedicated in 1831 and marked a colonial era. Mount Auburn Cemetery is a National historic landmark with classical monuments. Another place of interest is the O’Reilly Spite House, built in 1908 and purchased by Francis O’Reilly, who bought this narrow building as an investor. His efforts to sell the building to his neighbor were bluffed, and in response to that, he built a spite house on it. This refers to a structure specifically designed to spite anyone the builder dislikes. This spite house is still in use and has been converted for use as an office space.

History

The first settlement in Brookline was in 1638. The town was part of the European colony in Boston and once a part of the Algonquian territory. Brookline was established as an individual county in 1705 on 13th November.

Its name was coined from two small brooks that once bordered the northern and southern parts of the town. The Smelt brook from the North separated it from Brighton, and the Muddy River from the south separated it from Boston. In the early 1670s, Brookline village boomed as a business center. It later developed as a suburb for streetcars, aiding and offering transportation to Boston at cheaper rates. From 1705 to 1873, Brookline developed from a small rural town to a commuting town and continued to gain economic strength in real estate.

Large plots of land were converted to estate homes for the rich folks in Boston, and it soon became a residential area for the elite. The town of Brookline was unique for its picturesque architectures, parks, interconnected roads, and edifices.
It was once said to be the richest town in the world and is currently the richest county in Massachusetts.
