This local historical society was organized in 1896 by concerned citizens from the city of Medford.
Their purpose was to collect and preserve the history of this historic city, to correct the myths that had grown up over the years, to build a historical library, to collect the artifacts of local history, and to celebrate historical anniversaries.
One of their first projects was to sponsor a historical festival, "On the Banks of the Mystic," in 1896.
Shortly thereafter they started the Medford Historical Register, which appeared quarterly until 1943. This printed original research and other interesting information about the city, thus preserving a great deal of local history that would otherwise have been lost.
