Incorporated in 1711, early settlers relied primarily on agriculture and grazing, plus some winter lumbering with orchards and tanneries as supplements in the 1700s. Sawmills would open along the Charles River through the 18th century and, with the extension of the rail and land speculation of the mid-19th century, Needham saw growth in industrial employment.
