The Brazilian influence in Framingham, and a little-known vice president from Natick

The Brazilian community in Framingham has played a significant role in the city’s downtown revival, with Framingham Station being one of their flagship businesses. Housed in the historic train depot designed by H.H. Richardson, this Brazilian steakhouse offers an endless supply of mouth-watering Brazilian rodizio.

Not far from Framingham, in Natick, stands the Henry Wilson Shoe Shop, another historic structure of humbler origin. Here, Henry Wilson, also known as the Natick Cobbler, learned the ropes of the shoe trade before switching to politics and eventually becoming the Vice President of the United States under Ulysses S. Grant.
