  Natick Mall now Natick Collection - The Boston Globe
That's the new name of the Natick Mall, the 40-year-old shopping center that is wrapping up a 500,000-square-foot expansion to include more high-end retailers and restaurants.
Natick Collection was one of the names that was considered but passed over in favor of the ill-fated choice of Natick, Stephanie Gambino, the mall's senior marketing manager, said.
Arthur B. Fair III, a Natick business owner and president of the Natick Center Associates, said he had expected the mall to choose something like The Shoppes at Natick or The Village at Natick, but said he would leave naming decisions to the experts.

  Natick Historical Society - A Brief History of Natick
Natick was established in 1651 by the Puritan missionary, John Eliot, who settled a group of "Praying Indians" here on land granted by the General Court which was part of the Dedham Grant.
The prosperity of the village was destroyed when King Philip, son of the chief, Massasoit, attacked the white settlers causing such fear among them that in 1675 the Indians were restricted to their villages, which made it difficult for them to farm or to tend their livestock.
Natick was originally a farming town, but later, industries began to emerge.
