PART 6 - History. The main railroad from Boston to Worcester (and later Albany, and California) reached Natick in 1832. In 1846, the Saxonville Branch RR extended from downtown Natick to the dam being built as part of the new Cochituate Reservoir (Boston's first public drinking-water reservoir) and to provide freight and passenger service to the great Saxonville Mills that would replace the smaller mills along Cochituate Brook.
