Renewing the Call for Quiet


So much of the history of Needham is connected deeply with the train that runs through it. It moved our town center, it made the town an ideal place to summer and settle as people branched out from Boston. As contributory as it is, it is also the source of a lot of noise, and some who live nearby just want a little bit of peace and quiet. They are mounting a renewed effort to get some relief through the creation of a quiet zone.
