Waltham, located in eastern Massachusetts, is a western suburb of Boston. Founded in 1636, incorporated into a town in 1738 and then into a city in 1884, Waltham is now a diverse community with various opportunities for living, education, work, and leisure.

Historically Waltham is probably best known as the home of the Waltham Watch Factory, a pioneer company of the Industrial Revolution.
