About Belmont, MA
Belmont Massachusetts is a quiet, affluent, residential community located on the western suburban corridor of Boston on the divides between the Charles and Mystic Rivers. Until the early 19th century, Belmont was largely an agricultural town.

Belmont was then that the turnpike and railroad linked the area to Boston which stimulated the creation of several large estates. A Belmont farmer was the first to import and breed Holstein Cows and an estate in Belmont sparked the first use of hothouses to grow fruit and vegetables. The gardens under glass were so successful that they produced enough fruit to make the town first in the country in the value of fruit products and second in the country for vegetables.

Belmont residents are proud of their quiet, well-mannered and small 4.6 square mile community and are very civic minded.
