About Malden Historical Society

Our Mission

Welcome to the Malden Historical Society—a dynamic community where history comes alive and stories are waiting to be discovered. We believe that history is more than just a collection of dates and events; it's a rich tapestry woven from the collective experiences of everyone in our city. Our mission is to delve deep into the fabric of our past, uncovering the untold stories and hidden truths that shape our present reality.

At the Malden Historical Society, we celebrate the diversity of our community and the myriad voices that contribute to our shared narrative. Whether you're an amateur historian, a social butterfly, a civic enthusiast, or simply someone with a curious mind, there's a place for you here. We welcome activists, authors, local hosts, out-of-town visitors, lifelong residents, and new neighbors alike—all united by a common desire to explore, learn, and connect.

Join us as we embark on a journey through Malden's history, exploring how the events of the past continue to influence our lives today. Together, we'll uncover forgotten tales, rediscover lost traditions, and unearth the wisdom that lies within our community. And as we gain a deeper understanding of our past, we'll use that knowledge to shape a more just and equitable future for all.

Come be a part of the Malden story. Together, let's preserve the past, celebrate the present, and pave the way for generations to come.
