From Turnpike to Ted Williams: Route 9 in Natick

    Improve listing Presented by

We think of Route 9 today as a regional shopping mecca, but its history as a highway goes back more than 200 years. We'll share stories of Route 9's role in Natick history, from the location of the town's first post offices to the rise of retail after the Second World War. Terri Evans, who serves on the board of the Natick Historical Society, is a longtime tour guide with Boston By Foot and also leads walking tours of Natick.
