From Turnpike to Ted Williams: The history of Route 9 in Natick

Terri Evans

Wednesday, June 23, 2021

7:30 P.M.  Talk

Route 9 Natick
We think of Route 9 today as a regional shopping mecca, but its history as a highway and business enterprise goes back more than 200 years. In this presentation, local historian Terri Evans shares stories of Route 9’s role in Natick history, from the location of the town’s first post offices and the brief life of its only airport to the rise of retail following the Second World War.
Carling Brewery
Natick residentTerri Evans serves on the town’s planning board and the board of the Natick Historical Society, through which she gives walking tours of South Natick. She shares stories of Boston’s architectural history as a guide with Boston By Foot, and is a long-standing volunteer with the Friends of the Morse Institute Library.
