Notes
Survey number HABS MA-979
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-262).
Building/structure dates: 1857 initial construction
Significance: The structure served as Malden's Town Hall (later City Hall) from 1857 until 1975. Designed by a Boston architect, it was the second brick building erected in the town. This prominent building, facing Malden Square, served as a focal point for community activity for many years. At different times it housed the local high school, the public library, the local police, and a series of dry goods stores in addition to town offices. The great hall on the second floor was used for town meetings and was rented out to local community and fraternal organizations. This is the oldest extant public building in Malden.
