History

Belmont was founded on March 18, 1859 by former citizens of, and land from, the bordering towns of Watertown (to the south), Waltham (to the west) and West Cambridge (now Arlington, to the north and east). The town was named after Bellmont, the 200 acre (0.8 km²) estate of one of the leading advocates of and largest donor to its creation, John Perkins Cushing. The easternmost section of the town was returned to Cambridge in a dispute over a slaughterhouse built near the local reservoir, Fresh Pond; much of that area is now a major commercial and office center for the city of Cambridge. is the 77th day of the year (78th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Preceding its incorporation, Belmont was an agrarian based town, with several large farms servicing Boston for produce and livestock.

Other commercial enterprises in Belmont included mining and waste management. The reclamation of a large dump and quarry off Concord Avenue into sites for the Belmont High School and the Clay Pit Pond stands as a lasting example of environmental planning.
