The city of Medford, Massachusetts rests on the Mystic River. Incorporated in 1892, this city was a center of industry, including the manufacturing of brick, tile, and rum. It is home to a number of historical famous crimes including one of the biggest bank robberies and jewel heists of all time. The same property is used today as a restaurant where a hole in the ceiling that the robbers crawled through has been left for nostalgia. World-renowned Tufts University can be found in Medford, as well as Amelia Earhart’s residence at 76 Brooks Street. In addition to Earhart, many other notable people have called Medford home, such as “Jingle Bells” songwriter James Pierpoint and actress Jessica Biel.
