The Medford Historical Commission works to preserve and protect the city of Medford’s historic character and heritage in order to sustain and improve the significance of Medford’s place in American history.
Established under Section 8d of Chapter 40 of the Massachusetts General Laws and Chapter 48 of the Medford Municipal Ordinances, the Commission is the official city body charged with the identification of properties and sites in the city of historical significance, and is the principal advisor to the city on matters relating to historic preservation. The Commission is further charged with reviewing all requests for demolition of buildings constructed more than 75 years ago or that are listed in the National Register of Historic Places or the Massachusetts Register of Historic Places.

2020 Meeting Dates
The Commission traditionally meets on the second Monday of every month (except October, when it meets on the third Monday) at 7 PM in room 201 of City Hall.
In April 2020 the MHC had no new business and our community was taking precautions against the COVID-19, so the monthly meeting was cancelled. Since then we have been meeting via Zoom.
