Middlesex Savings Bank

Middlesex Savings Bank is one of the largest and strongest banks in Massachusetts with assets exceeding $4 billion. We have 29 branches and 5 business-lending centers serving 24 area communities.  As a mutual savings bank we don’t have shareholders.  That means we can focus on the long run well-being of business and consumer customers in our towns.  We have been an independent community bank for over 175 years and cannot be sold. That independence helps us fulfill our community mission.  We strive to provide outstanding value to customers by maintaining fee levels that are typically lower than large banking institutions.  What’s more, we are committed to advancing the work of the many community organizations and non-profits that make our towns outstanding places to live.

At Middlesex we believe that when community institutions are strong, the community prospers and we succeed as a community bank.

Natick Mills

Natick Mills

Natick Mills is delighted to sponsor the Friends of the 4th Celebrations and Parade.

Built in the early 1900's the Dean Shoe Building was a cornerstone for the Town of Natick prosperity. The building in the 1970's was used as a "mill" warehouse and retail shop for fabric and its products, thus the name "The Mills at Natick" or "Natick Mills."

In 1986 a local family, seeing its historical value, purchased the property and converted it into its current use as an 83 unit apartment building. The Natick Mills is still owned and managed by the same family.

The building is located 6 blocks north of the center of town on Route 27. It is an easy 5-10 minute walk to the MBTA commuter rail (to Boston/Worcester), downtown shopping and TCAN - The Center for the Arts in Natick. Natick Mills is minutes to all major shopping areas and minutes to all major highways including the Mass Turnpike, Routes 9, 95/128 and 2.
