The Natick Historical Society, founded in 1870, is the place to find out about all things Natick--landmarks and landscapes, personalities and peculiarities, events and experiences. We celebrate our community's rich history, from before its origins as the most successful Massachusetts Praying Indian Town to its Oldtown days made famous by Harriet Beecher Stowe, through to the important center of culture and commerce in the MetroWest region that it is today.
We collect and conserve artifacts, papers and materials important to the origins, development and ongoing life of the town and provide rich educational experiences based on authentic objects, primary sources, stories and lives that engage senior, family and school group audiences in programs, exhibitions and publications.
