After a series of land transfers between Medford and surrounding cities, the population grew exponentially from 230 people in 1700 to 18,244 by 1900. Medford was officially incorporated as a city in 1892 as a center of industry for brick, tile, rum and clipper ships. The city has been home to many notable residents over the years, including Amelia Earhart, Fannie Farmer and George Luther Stearns.
