Malden was settled by Puritans in 1640 on land purchased in 1629 from the Pawtucket Indians. Initially a part of Charlestown, it was incorporated as a separate town in 1649. The name Malden was selected by Joseph Hills and was named after Maldon, England (from Hills family tree information). Malden, which originally included what are now the adjacent cities of Melrose (until 1850) and Everett (until 1870), was incorporated as a city in 1882.
The first code of enacted laws printed in New England was compiled here by Joseph Hills in 1648. Malden also has the reputation of being the first town to petition the colonial government to withdraw from the British Empire. Malden contains a number of historic churches.
