About Scout Somerville

Scout Somerville is a hyperlocal, bimonthly magazine that’s distributed for free throughout the city of Somerville.

At Scout, our goal is to highlight the people who make this such a vibrant community. In print and online, we scour the diverse neighborhoods that make up the ‘Ville for human-driven stories. We believe every city deserves a publication that speaks straight to its readers—and that looks good doing so—and our small team strives to deliver just that.

Launched in 2009, Scout was originally direct mailed to every Somerville resident; as of November 2015, more than 30,000 copies are available for pickup at area businesses and in dropboxes all over the city.

Our sister publication, Scout Cambridge, brings the same hyperlocal flavor to our neighbor to the south.
