JOHN BROOKS.

Born in Medford, May, 1752 Died March 1st, 1825.
Governor of Massachusetts Seven Years.

CRADOCK HOUSE — 1634.



l^lf F.DFORD was settled in June, 1630, by a detachment of the
I \ Colonists who came to Salem under the leadership of John
Winthrop, from Suffolk, Essex, and Lincolnshire in England.
The settlement of the town was under the immediate auspices of
Governor Matthew Cradock, who proposed to establish Ox thk
Banks of the Mystic, the headquarters of the fishing interests in
which he had embarked considerable capital. The business was carried
on by his agents, for Cradock never visited the Colonies. The brick
building, built by his people in 1634, in the eastern part of the town, is
still standing in good condition, an interesting relic, and a monument
to him who may justly be called the founder of Medford.

Cradock was a distinguished merchant of London, a princely giver in
all subscriptions for helping the colony, a man of wisdom, goodness, zeal
and enthusiasm, and lionored with the esteem and confidence of those in
high authority.

The early histories tell of many settlers in other places, who became
dissatisfied with their first choice and moved to more promising localities,
but not a word of complaint reaches us from the first planters of Medford,
and no one to our knowledge left the plantation.



l^lf I'.DFORD has borne an hononilile part in the military and

/I political history of the country. Her citizens from the first

were loyal, generous, and zealous in every cause affecting the

public interests. Her company of "Minute-men," fifty-nine in number,

responded to the call at Lexington.

Their maxim was, "Every citizen a soldier; every soldier a patriot."
Medford men were with Washington at Monmouth, at Brandywine,
at the crossing of the Delaware, and in other places, and fought bravely
for the liberties and independence of their country. It seemed



"As if the very earth again
Grew quick with God's creating breath;
And, from the sods of grove and glen,
Rose ranks of lion-hearted men
To battle to the death."




THE ROYALL HOUSE.

Built by Colonel Isaac Royall in the last century, and the most expensive
house in Medford at the time.



Open to the public during Festival Week under the auspices of the
Historical Society and the supervision of a large and efficient committee,
members of which will be in daily attendance.




FOUNTAIN TAVERN, 1725.



FOR more than a hundred years all the land travel from Maine,
from the eastern part of New Hampshire, and the northeastern
parts of Massachusetts, passed through Medford, and its dis-
tance from Boston made it a convenient stopping place for traveling
traders. The "Fountain House" built in 1725 was a favorite resort,
on the great thoroughfare between Salem and Boston.

It was called "Fountain House" from having a new sign, repre-
senting a fountain pouring punch into a large bowl. The house is no
longer standing.

Brooks' History says, " Medford was favored in good tavern keepers.

Journeying in former days, one found queer specimens of humanity
among this unique class. Generally they were only variations of Yankee
Doodle. Some landlords were so full of sunshine that it was June all the
year round ; others had minds so frost-bitten that there was no hope for
you, except in the January thaw.

Here was one so anxious to oblige that he would spring to throw a
lasso around the moon, if you wished it ; and then another so cross,
that putting a question to him was like squeezing a lemon."

THE OLD TOWN PUMP.




THE JONATHAN WATSON HOUSE — 1750.

Washington Was Enteitaintd at Brookfaet in This House by General Brool<s in October, 1789.



VHERE the first schoolhouse stood is not known; but it was
probably near the Meeting-House at the West End. The
second was built in 1730. The first brick schoolhouse was
built in 1795, and enlarged in 1807. The early schoolhouses were
dismal and uncomfortable. The scholars who happened to be opposite
the great iron stove, which stood in the centre of the room, were almost
roasted ; and they literally got their learning by the sweat of their brows ;
while those who were nearest the windows were shivering under the icy
blasts of the frozen latitudes. The desks of the pupils became more and
more interesting. Once they were wide and smooth ; but when that time
was few can remember.

The adult population when they visited the Old Schoolhouse, could
each one find those —

" Walls on which he tried his graving skill;
The very name he carved existing still;
The bench on which he sat while deep employed,
Though mangled, hacked, and hewed, yet, not destroyed."

How many pen-knives were tried on the benches, desks and doors 01
the schoolhouse, arithmetic cannot compute, but one thing is clear, that,
whether the school left its mark on the pupil's mind or not, each pupil
felt bound to leave his mark on the house. — Brooks'' History.

HIGH SCHOOL HOUSE OF THE LAST CENTURY.

Located in the rear of the Unitarian Church.







MEDFORD HIGH SCHOOL BUILDING — U

Forest Street.



THE name of John Brooks, the most distinguished son of Medford,
holds an enviable place in American history. He was a prominent
figure in the struggle for national independence. A military leader
of skill and daring, and the trusted friend of Washington, who hon-
ored him with his most grateful acknowledgments and full confidence. He
returned to private life " rich in the laurels he had won, in the afiections
of his fellow soldiers, and in the esteem of the wise and good."

He represented his town in the General Court ; was a delegate to the
State Convention for the adoption of the Federal Constitution, and was
one of its most zealous advocates.

He was appointed by Washington marshal of this district and in-
spector of the revenue. He was successively elected to the Senate and
E.xecutive Council of the State ; served as Adjutant General to Governor
Strong during the war of 1812, and succeeded that official as Governor of
Massachusetts in 18 16, serving seven times. He received degrees from
Yale and Harvard Colleges. He was elected president of the Society of
Cincinnati, succeeding General Lincoln; was a member of the Academy
of Arts and Sciences. He was president of the Washington Monument
Association, the Bunker llill Monument Association, and of the Bible
Society of Mas.sachusetts.

In the words of the historian, " Never has there died among us a
man so widely known, so highly honored, so truly beloved, or so
deeply lamented."




THE OLD BRIDGE OVER THE MYSTIC.



THE first bridge over the Mystic was commenced in 1638 by
Gov. Cradock's agent, but the Province assisted in the expenses
before completion. The bridge was the cause of much bad
feeling and litigation. Some of the adjoining towns, notably Woburn,
demurred vigorously to bearing any share in the expense of main-
tenance, claiming that the bridge was not used by their citizens.
Appeals were taken to the courts, and the decision was in favor of
Medford. The Court apportioned the expense of " rebuilding Mistick
Bridge" among the towns of Charlestown, Woburn, Maiden, Reading
and Medford.

To this award Woburn, Maiden and Reading appealed, but with-
out avail. Some years later Medford became the sole owner of the
bridge. The structure was widened in 1789. A new bridge with a
draw was built in 1808. A new draw was built in 1829. This was
widened in 1834, and again in 1853.

Owing to the abandonment of the ship3-ards above the bridge, a draw
was no longer necessary ; and by authority of the Legislature, and con-
currence of the Harbor Commissioners, Cradock Bridge was made a solid
structure. The present stone bridge was built in 1S81-82.



GOVERNOR WINTHROP sailed from Cowes, in England, April,
1630. He reached Boston }]ay in June, and on the 17th of that
month he makes the following record : " Went up Mistick River
about six miles." To this heroic adventurer belongs the honor of
building the first vessel whose keel was laid in this part of the Western
World; and that vessel was built on the bank of Mystic River. It
was launched July 4, 1631, and named "The Blessing of the Bay."
The serpentine course of the river was favorable to a large number of
shipyards, ten being located within the distance of a mile. Timber
was procured from Medford, Maiden, Woburn, Burlington, Lexington,
Stoneham, Andover and adjoining towns. In the seventy years from
1803 567 vessels were built at the Medford yards. The last ship built
in this town was launched from the yard of Mr. J. T. Foster in 1873.
Among the prominent builders may be mentioned the names Or
Magoun, Turner, Lapham, Curtis, Stetson and Foster. The ship
"Avon" was built in 26 days. The decline of the commercial marine
of this country resulted in the extinction o the shipbuilding industry
in Medford.

The pioneer in the eventful movement of shipbuilding in Medford was
Thatcher Magoun, who came here in 1802 and located his shipyard on
Riverside Avenue, a little south of Park Street. He built and resided in
the house that is now used for our Public Library, and which was pre-
sented to the town as a library building by his son, Thatcher Magoun.
