Nonantum was famous because it is the home of Waban, one of the first Native Indians in Massachusetts who was converted to Christianity. In the 18th century, there was an influx of immigrants that moved to Nonantum to work in cotton, wool, and rope mills. These new residents were predominantly from Russia and Ireland, but there was also an influx of Italian immigrants from San Donato Val di Comino, Italy.
