A quaint city of around 27,000[*], Melrose has many amenities and entertainment options itself while being directly connected the Boston MBTA transit system. The short commute into the capital has made Melrose a highly desirable area, especially with its green, countryside feel.
Once referred to as North Malden, Melrose took its own name from the Scottish town of Melrose because of its similar rolling hills. Until the mid-19th century, Melrose remained a sparsely populated farming area until the Boston & Maine Railroad built a few stops in the area, causing a population boom that classified Melrose as a city not fifty years later.
Melrose’s rural background has remained throughout the years. The Middlesex Fells Reservation to the west is a paradise for outdoor types, offering an extensive trail system, boating opportunities and even a small, but diverse zoo! What makes Melrose an up and coming market is that you can have a picnic in a beautiful park for lunch and make it to a big city event in the evening, wasting little of the day’s time on travel.
