Are There Really 50 Medfords in the US?
Heard in the teacher's room at Medford High:
"Did you know that there is a Medford in every state in the Union?" At the time, I just took this statement at face value. But, recently, I was thinking that I've only ever heard of two Medfords: one in Massachusetts and the other in Oregon.
So, as my very first Hub ever, I decided to do a quick Google search to see if there really are 50 Medfords in our United States!
List of Medfords and Their States
So, in my preliminary Google search, I only found a total of 16 "Medfords" out of 50 states.
1. Medford, AL
2. Medford, CT
3. Medford, IN
4. Medford, KS
5. Medford, MA
6. Medford, MD
7. Medford, ME
8. Medford, MN
9. Medford, MO
10. Medford, ND
11. Medford, NJ
12. Medford, NY
13. Medford, OK
14. Medford, OR
15. Medford, TN
16. Medford, WI
There is a Medford Farms in New Hampshire, but that seems to be a section of Goffstown, rather than an independent municipality. There was a rather uninformative entry on Medford (historical) in Arkansas; does this mean there was once a town or city named Medford that was, perhaps, razed to make way for an overpass or dam or some other public project?

Now I invite you, dear Reader(s), to add to this list! Do you know of any present or historical Medford in your state (or nearby)? Please, educate us about our own backyard!
