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, from its origins as the most successful Massachusetts "Praying Indian Plantation" 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 now. The stories of local life throughout our history are what we share through our collections, educational programs, and outreach events.
