About Medford, MA
Home of Tufts University, Medford is a college town, but it is also a bustling suburb of Boston, just five miles north of the capital. With a history intimately tied to Charlestown and the Massachusetts Bay Colony, Medford is an historic city that retains its old New England feel while also boasting all the modern amenities of urban living. Seven distinctive residential neighborhoods or squares make up the city, and each has its own rich history, subculture, and contemporary character.

Medford Historical So

The task of ensuring Medford's history is preserved has largely fallen to the city's historical society since its inception in 1896, a major undertaking indeed, given that the city of Medford is the fourth-oldest British settlement in America. Working collaboratively with Tufts University and other schools as well as individual historians, history buffs, and clubs, the Medford Historical Society has met the task. The collects at the museum include photographs and documents from every period in Medford's history, including 5,400, mostly platinum-type photos from the Civil War, the world's third-largest collection of its kind.

Tufts University

There are three campuses of Tufts University in the Boston metropolitan area and the oldest and largest of these resides in Medford, stretching portions of the Central and South Medford neighborhoods. A small area of the campus does cross-city lines into the community of Somerville to the south, however, but the university has been a fixture of Medford since 1840, essentially holding distinctive neighborhood status as a result. Tufts University schools of engineering and arts and sciences are here as is the Fletch School of Law and Diplomacy, or International Affairs, as it is also commonly known.

Medford Arts Center

The Medford local arts scene has always been active, but the Medford Arts Center, Inc. (MACI) has only been serving the community since 2004. In that time, however, the MACI has brought local arts to the forefront of Medford culture through arts festivals, support of local artists, public art displays, and most recently, the establishment of the Mystic Art Gallery, a venue in which the work of local artists always takes precedence. Arts festivals are important MACI-sponsored community enrichment programs, and the most popular of these annual events, the Doc Kounze Arts Festival, now includes an independent film festival.
