Melrose, Massachusetts, USA

Melrose, Middlesex, MA

The land that comprises Melrose was first settled in 1628 and was once part of Charlestown and then Malden. It became the Town of Melrose in 1850 and then the City of Melrose in 1900. The name "Melrose" comes from the burgh of Melrose, Scotland. It was a reference to the hills of Melrose, Scotland which the new town resembled. The name was suggested and advocated for by William Bogle, a Scotland native and longtime resident of North Malden. wikipedia

Melrose includes: East Side, Highlands, Mount Hood, and Wyoming.
