Hiring a Watertown Moving Company? Here are few facts about your new hometown:

Tucked between Waltham to the West and Cambridge to East is the Boston suburb of Watertown. Its area of only 4.2 square miles may make Watertown one of America’s smallest cities in size. But there’s quite a bit of history packed inside the tiny town along the Charles River.

Mount Auburn Cemetery – A future resting place for Watertown movers?

On the Cambridge-Watertown line is the beautiful 174-acre Mount Auburn Cemetery. Both a cemetery and an arboretum, Mount Auburn also features the Washington Tower. And, from the 62-foot structure, you can see a panorama of Boston and its northwestern suburbs.

While the cemetery is the resting place of many notable figures, two of the most interesting are Charles Bulfinch and Edwin Booth. Bulfinch was the famous architect who designed much of Boston’s Beacon Hill neighborhood, including the Massachusetts State House. Booth, on the other hand, was a famous Boston stage actor and brother to the notorious thespian and assassin, John Wilkes Booth.

Perkins School for the Blind

And speaking of Helen Keller, the first deaf-blind person to earn a bachelor’s degree, Watertown is home to one of the world’s premier schools for disabled individuals. Perkins School moved to Watertown in 1912 and remains at its North Beacon Street campus to this day. In fact, the school produces its own Perkins Brailler, a typewriter for producing braille that has been in use since the 1950’s.

Overnight parking during the winter is a no-go!

Watertown has a strict no overnight parking policy during the winter months. While not popular, this is a longtime local policy that isn’t expected to change anytime soon. If you’re hiring a Watertown moving company, make sure you’ll have somewhere to park during the winter months. 

Stanley Steamers – Never driven by Watertown movers!

Twin Brothers Francis and Freelan Stanley built their first steam-powered vehicle in Watertown in 1897. It became known as the “Stanley Steamer.” While not a vehicle ever operated by our Watertown movers the Stanley Steamer did have some success at the time. Ultimately, the internal combustion engine proved more efficient and made the Stanley Steamer obsolete before the 1920’s, the vehicle still keeps a place in the popular imagination:
