The town of Needham was active in the Revolutionary War and the Industrial Revolution and continued its evolution over the years to become a very productive suburb of Boston in the latter half of the twentieth century. From streetcar suburb to bedroom and business community, Needham developed over time as a vital contributor to the metropolitan region. Through the years, Needham has been home to a number of regional attractions and famous citizens. In 1876, several large structures were moved from the Philadelphia Centennial Exposition to form the basis of the Baker-Ridge Hill resort and pleasure garden, comparable in its time to the theme parks of today. Botanist Denys Zirngiebel developed the giant Swiss pansy in Needham: and Zirngiebel's grandson, N.C. Wyeth, painted many of his famous works of art in town. Needham has historically given a great deal to residents of the area, and it is with great pleasure that the members of the Needham Historical Society present this visual record of the town's achievements.
