Waltham Massachusetts was founded in eastern Massachusetts in 1636 and incorporated into a town in 1738 and then into a city in 1884. The Charles River cuts a path through the southern section of Waltham and has been used throughout its history for transportation and industry. Waltham is probably most historically famous for the Waltham Watch Factory that made its home on the banks of the Charles and was a pioneer company of the industrial revolution.
The Charles River has given way to Route 128, the main economic center of the city and has the second largest office market in the greater Boston area. Waltham has a diverse housing market with multi-family houses near the downtown section and single family neighborhoods along its borders.
Waltham is the home for higher education with two of the most prestigious colleges in the east - Bentley College and Brandeis University. The downtown section of Waltham hosts many diversified restaurants guaranteed to satisfy any craving or palette along with many retail establishments.
With all of these amenities and its convenient location just off Route 128 and its public transportation systems which include the commuter rail - Waltham is an especially pleasant place to live or work.
