A large portion of the site is built upon my personal memories as well as research. But many of the real histories that you see are the result of feedback from many Framingham and Natick area residents of the past and present. There is no possible way that the site would be what it is today without their help.

Do you have any memories of the "Golden Mile" in Framingham, and what it was like in the 60's, 70's and 80's? Can you remember an obscure retailer at Shopper's World that isn't listed on the page? Did you work at any of the stores in the Natick Mall? Or did you help build it from the ground up? Is my history of Northbrook Court terribly wrong? Whatever your connection to the scene in and around this retail corridor of MetroWest, I'd love to hear about it. Feel free to use the feedback form to tell me.
