West Medford is a regional rail station on the MBTA Commuter Rail Lowell Line, located at West Medford Square in Medford, Massachusetts. West Medford station is not handicapped accessible.
When the original Boston and Lowell Railroad was laid out in the 1830s, West Medford was mostly farmland. The route of the new railroad (one of the oldest railroads in North America) was built on land acquired from Peter Chardon Brooks, who sold a strip for the right-of-way plus a parcel for the station on High Street. The initial stop was called "Medford Gates"; it gave birth to West Medford Square and, eventually, the surrounding residential neighborhoods.
