About Melrose, MA
Melrose Massachusetts was settled in the mid 18th century and since then has offered its residents scaling between the metropolis of Boston and the frontier of rural exurbia.

Melrose is mostly a residential community containing exquisite Victorian homes dating from the late 1800’s but beyond that the small city has a tradition of being self sufficient and supports housing – education – employment – health – shopping – entertainment - recreation and leisure needs of its residents.

Another vital component of the quality of life in Melrose is its open spaces. Trees line the streets and beautiful parks are dispersed in and around Melrose. The city is encircled by a “green belt” which includes the Middlesex Fells Reservation and this belt buffers it from surrounding communities.
