Malden, Massachusetts

Malden is a city in Middlesex County, Massachusetts. A hilly woodland area north of the Mystic River, it was settled by Puritans in 1640 on land purchased in 1629 from the Pennacook tribe of native Americans. Malden was ranked in 2009 as the “Best Place to Raise Your Kids” in Massachusetts by Bloomberg Businessweek Magazine.

Malden is bordered by Melrose on the north, Stoneham on the northwest, Medford on the west, Everett on the south, Revere on the east and Saugus on the northeast. Waitt’s Mountain is the highest point in town. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 5.1 square miles (13 km2), of which 5.1 square miles (13 km2) is land and 0.04 square miles (0.10 km2) is water. Bordered on the north by the cliffs of Middlesex Fells, Malden is drained by the Malden River. One of Malden’s finest and most notable landmarks is the public library, which was designed by Henry Hobbs Richardson and built in 1885.

Like many communities in New England, many towns and neighborhoods are organized around “Squares,” which are locations of crossroads and town commons dating from the colonial and early 19th century. Many of the neighborhoods in Malden take their name and identity from the Square around which they are centered. Some of the neighborhoods in Malden include Faulkner, West End, Edgeworth, Linden, Ferryway, Forestdale, Maplewood, Bellrock and Belmont Hill.
