The original area of Medford, incorporated in 1892, was once under the ownership of the first governor of the Massachusetts colonies, Mathew Cradock. The name of this city is believed to have come from its historic description as "the ford by the meadow," emphasizing the critical importance of this shallow, wade-able portion of the Mystic River. Initially settled by shipbuilders, brick makers and rum distillers, the modern-day Medford prides itself on its brand new schools and well-maintained parks and green spaces.
Another community asset is the West Medford Community Center, a 60-year-old hub of activity aimed at keeping residents connected by way of its ongoing social, educational, cultural and recreational activities. Locals often stop in for exercise, dance, art or singing classes, as well as lectures, forums, health fairs, and events like the "Meet Your Neighbor" potluck dinners.
Nestled within a new waterfront neighborhood is Arborpoint at Station Landing that has one, two and three-bedroom apartments for rent. Units have a range of desirable extras like dishwashers, air conditioning, washers and dryers, sun decks, a clubhouse, storage rooms and a free fitness center, as well as on-site maintenance and management. The complex offers its own retail locations and restaurants, and neighbors the Wellington Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority station. Tenants are allowed one space in the underground parking area so there are never any concerns about where to leave the vehicle.
