Only 5 miles outside of Boston, Medford accents are thick and community pride runs deep. Many families have called the town home for generations.
The fourth oldest English settlement in America, Medford was founded in 1630. The recently revamped river walk and locally owned shops and restaurants foster a sense of small-town charm. It was the home of Fannie Farmer, author of Boston Cooking-School Cook Book revolutionized American cooking, the town referred to in the famous song Jingle Bells and the birthplace of roller skates. Medford includes over 24 public parks for residents and features a diverse food scene. Its proximity to the city and great local atmosphere make it a great place for young professionals and families alike.
