A History of Natick

About Natick, Massachusetts

Natick has always been a special place. Our town is a microcosm of American history—conflicts and cooperation between native peoples and European settlers, the transition from farms to factories and the issues it raised such as immigration, suffrage and abolition and, more recently, the birth of the mall as a driving suburban force.


We have great stories to tell about sports heroes starting with the 1891 firemen who earned us the nickname “Home of Champions.” Natick has inspired inventors and inventions: from mechanization of shoe making to innovations at The Mathworks and COGNEX. Natick is home to world-class authors, artists and performers.
