History or Fable, which had we? Our Historical Society is completing its thirtieth year and with the coming issue the twenty-ninth volume of its publication. There were some who thought in its early days that it would soon exhaust the stock of history, but there is yet a lot to learn. For instance, when was Medford first settled? Where? And who were they who came into this unknown land and built their first habitation? Was it on a promontory, sixty rods southeast of the ancient house. . . of James and Isaac Wellington? This assertion was made (1855): On its highest point they built the first home erected in Medford, in July, 1630. As this spot was then in Charlestown, later Malden and Everett, and not till 1817 or 1875 in Medford, shall we regard it as history or, quoting our former president, as a whole lot of fable? Areal history of Medford's earliest days would be really interesting.
