A Piece of Malden’s History Displayed in the Mayor’s Office

Mayor Gary Christenson was pleasantly surprised when Father Mark DeAngelis of Sacred Hearts Parish visited bearing Malden memorabilia: an official Anniversary Plate “in commemoration of the 250th Anniversary of Maldon, MA USA.” The 1899 blue and white plate, created by Josiah Wedgwood & Sons, Etruria, England and Richard Briggs of Boston, features the Converse Memorial Building in the center with images of Hills Tavern (1720), The Parsonage (1724) and a view from Bailey’s Hill from 1837 along the edges. Inscribed on the front is “Upon the Petition of Mistick Side men, They are granted to be a Distinct Towne, & the Name Thereof to be called Mauldon”. The treasured keepsake will be displayed in the Mayor’s office.
