History

Malden, a hilly woodland area north of the Mystic River, was settled by Puritans in 1640 on land purchased in 1629 from the Pawtucket Indians. The area was originally called "Mistick Side"[3] and was a part of Charlestown. It was incorporated as a separate town in 1649.[4] The name Malden was selected by Joseph Hills, an early settler and landholder, and was named after Maldon, England.[5] Malden, which originally included what are now the adjacent cities of Melrose (until 1850) and Everett (until 1870), was incorporated as a city in 1882.
