Native fishermen once gathered here to hunt herring, but modern Bostonians mostly head to Watertown to hunt for bargains at Arsenal Mall outlet stores. Besides its namesake ponds, few landmarks remain from Watertown's early Massachusetts Bay colony days. The munitions fortress has been creatively repurposed as the Arsenal Center for the Arts, home to the New Repertory Theater. Early handicapped accessibility advocate Helen Keller attended Watertown's Perkins School for the Blind, where the pioneering Braille and Talking Book Library now includes digital apps. In the 20th century, the Armenian diaspora brought new neighbors and customs to Watertown. Baskets of roasted pistachios and dried Massachusetts cranberries are now a Boston holiday tradition, thanks to Fastachi Nuts founder Souren Etyemezian. Mt. Auburn Street is a bargain gourmet strip, from Mediterranean eggplant flatbread at Sofra Bakery to sliced-to-order prosciutto sandwiches at The Meat Spot. Bet you won't miss the herring.
