The Suburban Development of Natick, Needham, Newton, and Wellesley

  • Needham History Center & Museum 1147 Central Avenue Needham, MA 02492 United States (map)

Urban planner James O’Connell has called Boston the “national pacesetter for suburbanization.”  Spurred first by a shortage of space, and then by convenient transportation, Boston has created around itself a network of suburbs – our towns among them – that constitute one of the world’s largest metropolitan areas, and one of its most prosperous.

This event is supported by the Wellesley Bank Charitable Foundation and is part of the “Crossing Borders” series, a collaboration between Historic Newton, the Natick Historical Society, the Needham History Center & Museum, and the Wellesley Historical Society.

It is FREE and open to the public.
