The town of Melrose was originally known as Ponde Field for the great number of ponds and streams found within its boundaries. It was incorporated as a town in 1845. With just 4.8 square miles of land, the town houses a population of over 27,000 in little more than 11,000 households.
Melrose has a mix of urban and suburban feel with five public elementary schools, one public middle school and one high school servicing the needs of the community. Vibrant Melrose center services the needs of hungry restaurant goers and eager shoppers.
Recently, Melrose has made a Hollywood splash appearing as backdrop in films such as Gone Baby Gone and Knight and Day.
Just seven miles from Boston, Melrose offers Orange Line access at 3 T stations; Wyoming Hill, Melrose/Cedar Park and Melrose Highlands. Easy highway access to Route 1, Route 93, and Route 128 certainly help the commute as well.
