Samuel Clifford WOOD2 was born in 1847 in Quarndon, Derbys.2 He died before 1923 at the age of 76 in ?United States.2 Needham remained a largely agricultural town until the mid-1800s. In 1853, the first rail line was laid, connecting Needham to Boston. Denied access to the town center at Nehoiden Street, the rail line was diverted southward into the
largely-empty Great Plain. The presence of the railroad drew both businesses and residents away from the old town center and toward Great Plain Avenue and the surrounding streets. The Baptist and Congregational parishes also placed their new
churches there. In 1879, the First Parish church was lifted up onto rollers and moved to its current location on Dedham Avenue, firmly establishing Great Plain Avenue as the new town center.

Rail access to Needham was extended not only for commercial purposes, but also to accommodate the "Back Bay Fill". Starting in 1859, gravel was transported from Needham to Boston to fill in the Back Bay for residential use. For nearly 15 years,
over 1200 freight cars per day were loaded with gravel dug from the area that now forms the Industrial Center and the Route 128 interchange.

Also in the 1850s, Needham began to see the development of industry, especially in Needham Heights. Knitters from the English Midlands, displaced by economic changes in their own country, migrated to Needham and the surrounding towns to
reestablish their businesses. The most famous of these was the William Carter Company, which today still produces fine knitwear (though no longer in Needham). In 1890 there were more than 15 companies manufacturing knitted garments in Needham
Heights. By about 1900, the demand for labor in these factories brought an influx of new immigrants to Needham -- not only from England, but also from Ireland, Italy and Poland.
