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 prior to 1900 or that are listed in the National Register of Historic Places or the Massachusetts Register of Historic Places.

Current Commissioners:

Ryan D. Hayward, Chairman
Doug Carr, Vice Chair/Secretary
Benjamin Johnson
Abigail Salerno
Richard T. Northrup
Jennifer Keenan
Edward Wiest
