==History==
 
 
Originally Maitland consisted of three separate towns which arose roughly around the same time. [[West Maitland, New South Wales|West Maitland]], now just Maitland, was a privately founded town which grew because of its proximity to the river and which today is the commercial centre of the city. The other areas were [[East Maitland, New South Wales|East Maitland]], which was established by the colonial New South Wales government, and [[Morpeth, New South Wales|Morpeth]], another private town founded by Lt Close, a [[Peninsular War]] veteran.
 
 
The present city was proclaimed in 1945 with the amalgamation of the three local government areas.
