Wellesley

More than 350 years ago, when a handful of men first settled around the Charles River that is now known as Wellesley, they were so delighted with their new town that they named it "Contentment." Although the name has changed over the centuries, the feeling of pride and satisfaction on the part of residents toward their home still remains strong. In the 1830's, the railroad came to town, bringing Boston businessmen and a modern way of life, forever changing the face of this quiet town. One of the businessmen attracted to this pretty, restful place was Henry Durant, who in 1875 startled the countryside by founding Wellesley College. He named the college to honor his neighbor, Horatio Hollis Hunnewell, a wealthy businessman and town benefactor whose mansion was named "Wellesley" in commemoration of his wife, whose maiden name was Welles.

Through the foresight of town fathers who in 1914 made Wellesley the first town in America to adopt zoning laws, Wellesley grew into a beautiful town. By the 1920s it was recognized as one of the leading suburbs of Boston, becoming a center for shopping when Filene's department store opened its first branch.

Katherine Lee Bates, a town resident and Wellesley College professor who in 1893 wrote "America the Beautiful", was perhaps the first person to bring the name of her town to international attention when her song became popular among soldiers during World War I. The affluence and prosperity of the 20th century have left their mark on Wellesley, which has become a well-regarded suburb featuring a school system consistently recognized as one of the best in the state. Although the town has always had the finest of beautiful land and homes, of schools and colleges, and every advantage of government, there are many who feel that her greatest resource has been her people.
