About Natick
map
Natick Massachusetts was established in 1650 and is a suburban industrial town located on the upper basin of the Charles and Concord Rivers. It is nestled beside the Massachusetts Turnpike and Route 9 making it very convenient.

Form its earliest colonial days Natick was a prime target for development because it had good agricultural land as well as fish runs and water power. Natick also supported itself with some lumbering and grist and sawmills were established. Local lore claims that several loads of men from Natick journeyed out to the California gold rush in 1849 and returned with enough capital to start their independent businesses. With the first shoe sole maker in 1827 the shoe industry dominated the community by the early 19th century and shoes were shipped to the western and southern markets by 1830. By the 1880’s Natick was the third largest manufacturer of shoes in the country.

Today Natick has become an industrial Boston-oriented suburban community that includes intense strip mall development on Route 9.
