Mayor Gary Christenson and members of the Malden Historical Commission joined owners and developers John Brennan and Greg Corcoran to celebrate acceptance of the Browne-Masonic Building for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. The Classical Revival/Neo-Classical Revival building, constructed in 1894, was designed by Boston architectural firm, Hartwell and Richardson, and is architecturally significant for its preserved yellow-and-red brick facades, cast iron storefronts and ornamental masonry. Located in the heart of downtown at the corner of Pleasant, Washington and Exchange Streets, this landmark building is recognized for its historical significance to Malden’s commerce, social history and government. 

Later that same day the Mayor joined City Council President Craig Spadafora, Ward 3 City Councilor Amanda Linehan, Historical Commission Chair John Tramondozzi and Commissioners Joseph Cesario and Inna Babitskaya along with project consultant David Hancock and Community Preservation Committee Chair Lisa Sulda to celebrate completion of the restoration of the Wallace Memorial Park Wall, a historic preservation project funded by the Community Preservation Act.  Located at the main entry to the Edgeworth and West End neighborhoods, the wall is a highly visible artifact with historic and architectural significance to the community. The wall surrounds the Wallace Memorial Park, part of the former landmark Beebe Estate, and has long-standing significance to Veterans, being dedicated to Civil War Commander Oscar C. Wallace and home to the Spanish-American War monument.
