NEWTON LIFE

Newton has a well-deserved reputation as "The Garden City".  But physical beauty is only a small part of its attraction.  Rich in historic, ethnic, and cultural makeup, Newton's heterogeneous population blend gives the city a marvelous character and dynamic personality.

Settled in 1630, Newton was originally incorporated as a town in 1688, and then much later, in 1873, Newton became a city.

Newton encompasses twelve distinct neighborhoods, called "villages", each with its own personality and flavor.    Enjoy your "virtual" visit!
