As of the 2010 census, the city had a total population of 75,754 and was the most densely populated municipality in New England. It is also the 17th most densely populated incorporated place in the country . It was first settled in 1630 as part of Charlestown and called “Charlestown Beyond the Neck”. It was incorporated as a town in 1842, when it was separated from the urbanizing Charlestown. The name Somerville has no significant historical significance but was instead simply determined by the original founders of the town to be a pleasant name.Traffic on the Middlesex Canal began from the mouth of the Charles River in Charlestown to Lowell by going through East Somerville, where several historical markers can still be seen today.Originally, Somerville included many of the less desirable railway and industrial lands squeezed between the Charles River to the southwest and the Mystic River to the northeast. However, Somerville’s participation in the industrial revolution included the origination of Sanborn Maps, believed to have been invented in Somerville in 1867, and was used extensively throughout the United States by the insurance industry. The original Sanborn Maps can be found on display at the main branch of the Somerville Public Library.Somerville’s industrial past left one special legacy, the invention of Fluff, the marshmallow creme. In addition,Steve’s Ice Cream and Bertucci’s, sprung from adjacent lots in Somerville’s Davis Square.Though officially listed as being located in Medford, Tufts University is also located in Somerville. The Somerville-Medford line runs through Tufts’ campus splitting the main library.
