The Waltham center point is approximately the area of Waltham Historical Society and the area of Deaconess Waltham Hospital.

Like many towns in the Boston area, Waltham dates back to the 1600s. Its first settlement and eventual incorporation both happened well before the Revolutionary War, which gives Waltham a rich American history. In the city are several large historical estates that were built at the end of the 18th and beginning of the 19th centuries.

Waltham has a population of over 60,000 people and is home to two universities: Brandeis University and Bentley University. It got the nickname "Watch City" because of the Waltham Watch Company, which started producing timepieces in 1850. The company stopped producing watches in 1957, and in 1959 they became part of the Hallmark Watch Company. The city's nickname, however, has stuck since then.

Popular tourist activities in Waltham include the Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation, Gore Place, Prospect Hill Park, and Stonehurst, the Robert Treat Paine estate. More from this guide...

"Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation"
Score 4.0 / 5

Love the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation, where I got married. The park outside was also a great spot for our ceremony, and parking at the Embassy lot was convenient, though guests would have had trouble finding their way without detailed directions.
