History:  

WALTHAM Township, organized June 4, 1866, had been named April 16, 1858, at a meeting of the county commissioners, one of whom, Charles F. Hardy of Red Rock, was a native of Waltham in Massachusetts. The city of Waltham, in sections 9, 10, and 16, was platted September 8, 1885, and incorporated as a village on February 21, 1898. It was originally platted in 1865 one mile west of the present site by A. J. Burbank for land speculators; Burbank erected a three-story hotel on the townsite, and a post office opened, 1867-74. When the Chicago Great Western Railroad came in 1885, the railroad platted the new site, and the original townsite land was sold off for farming. A new post office was established in 1886.
