Waltham was a major contributor to the American Industrial revolution. The first settlement in the town was in 1634, when it was still a part of Watertown. It was established as a separate town in 1738. It was the original home of Boston Manufacturing Company, the first integrated textile mill in the United States. This was one of the first factories in America, and it was the first spinning and weaving factory in the world. This served as the town’s center in the 1830s, and the land has now been converted to Central Square in Waltham.
The Waltham watch company premiered in Waltham in 1854, significantly contributing to industrialization as the first company producing watches in an assembly line.

The city is also known for its large exquisite estates designed by renowned architects like Frederick Law Olmsted.
