Natick and the New England Character

Natick was founded on an idea, and one based on the character of its people.  In 1651, Puritan missionary John Eliot and American Indian leader Waban created a community that was governed by Christian principles.  Their stamp is still seen on the landscape and in how Natick is still known today as the primary “Praying Indian” town in Massachusetts.  Over the centuries, writers, thinkers, and activists associated with Natick changed the course of American history, and in turn these luminaries and their works shaped how New England and its people were viewed by the wider world.
