Here is the place to find out about all things Natick—landmarks and landscapes, personalities and peculiarities, events, and experiences.  Founded in 1870, the NHS celebrates our community's rich history. Natick originated as the most successful Massachusetts "Praying Indian Plantation," and gained renown in its "Oldtown" days thanks to Harriet Beecher Stowe.  The town is now an important center of culture and commerce in the MetroWest region. The stories of local life throughout our history are what we share through our collections, educational programs, and outreach events.
