Belmont, MA History and Pests

The history of Belmont dates right back to 1639. That’s when the first settlers arrived. The town was established in 1859 and was named after John Perkins Cushing’s large estate, Bellmont. He was an affluent sea merchant who traveled to China at the young age of 16. He worked there for 30 years and made excellent profits. When he returned to Massachusetts, he bought a big estate for himself and named it Bellmont.

The town was once an agrarian based region with many big farms. It was only in the 20th century that Belmont was converted into a residential area with large estates. Even today, Belmont remains a residential suburb. The Belmont Hill neighborhood is home to several mansions. Most residents, however, occupy homes located in low-lying areas around the central hill.

There are three commercial areas in town named Belmont Center, Cushing Square, and Waverley Square. Apart from these commercial areas, there are a few places of historical interest. The one that’s most commonly visited is the historic Wellington Station. It was built in 1840 and moved to its present site (2 Common Street) in 1980.

Pests most commonly seen in Belmont, MA include mice, spiders, roaches, and wasps.
