Plans for a Park at Round Hill in Saugus

Let’s go Sachems! Residents often yell this phrase at sports games, in hopes of a victory
for the red-and-white. But in the excitement, the word Sachem and the historical significance
of it are often overlooked. 
The Saugus Historical Commission is doing its part to make sure
that doesn’t happen by developing a park at Round Hill to call attention to the town’s extensive
Native American history.  T
he Historical Commission is pursuing a proposal to build a park at
Round Hill, located behind the Public Safety Building.

A rendering shows granite bollards to prevent vehicles from intruding into the space,
a handicapped accessible path, benches,
and a sign detailing the history and significance of the area.

Stephen Carlson, chairman of the Historical Commission, explained,  “We’re not asking the
town to fund the project.  But we do want to make sure the town approves of the plans.”


Saugus boasts deep Native American roots and Round Hill is one of many locations where
artifacts have been recovered. 
First settled in 1629, Saugus is the Native American name for
“great” or “extended.” The area that once included Lynn, Lynnfield, Nahant, Reading, Swampscott,
 and Wakefield was presided over by a sachem, a man considered a king by Native Americans.

Featured on the town seal is Montowampate, the sachem of Saugus, holding a bow in one hand
and an arrow in the other. Behind him is the historic site of Round Hill, with a spruce tree growing
atop. 
Today, Round Hill is a wooded area that rises behind the Public Safety complex. According
to town historians, the site was once a sacred meeting place for Montowampate and his braves.

 Nearby residents will be kept in the loop while the project moves forward. 
The ultimate decision rests with Town Meeting as to whether to put a park at the site.
If all necessary approvals are obtained, Carlson expects some of the construction might be
performed by town employees, but the majority of the cost will be covered by private investors.
“We will be looking for donations from businesses and town residents,” he said.
