In 1637 Samuel Saltonstall was surveying land granted to him for grazing by the City of Boston. As he traveled to the area, he was sidetracked as he passed the area now known as Watertown. As darkness set in, Saltonstall found shelter in the caves in what is known today as Bear Hill in Waltham. During the night, a ferocious eight hundred pound Black Bear attacked Samuel, but with his bare hands alone he wrestled the bear. Saltonstall took over the bear as a pet, domesticated him, and named him Chief Cutstomach after a famous Native American tribe leader of the area. The due started to tour the colony, and henceforth the area srrounding Saltonstall’s legendary match has been known as Bear Hill.
