A marker reads:
"Praying Indians lived here ... living peacefully with white settlers to whom ... Sachem Tahatttawan sold 6 sq. miles.
John Eliot converted Indians, including Tahattawan, to Christianity.
In 1654, Nashoba, meaning 'land between the waters' was named the Sixth Praying Indian town.
In 1675, during King Philip's War, Praying Indians were accused of mischief, rounded up and marched to Deer Island in Boston Harbor where many died.
Survivors were released in 1677, but only a few returned, including Sarah Doublet.
They were given 500 acres called New Town. Sarah Doublet died in 1730, the last Praying Indian.
In 1714, Nashoba became Littleton."
