Living in Newton, MA
This historical town was settled in 1630 as part of "the newe towne," and was later named Cambridge in 1638. During the 19th and early 20th centuries, Newton-based historian Diana Muir referred to Newton as one of America's first commuter towns. After the developments of railroads in the area, Bostonians began to build beautiful homes within Newton, many of which still exist to this day. During the automobile boom in the 1920s, the area became a popular spot for upper middle class citizens. However, to this day, the majority of Newton residents work within the city and rarely commute to Boston or any of the surrounding cities for their careers.
Newton Attractions and Special Events
There are a number of spots throughout the city that will fit anyone's taste. For classical music lovers, Newton has two symphony orchestras, the New Philharmonia Orchestra of Massachusetts and the Newton Symphony Orchestra. The town also has a free library that has the largest collection of print materials, art, recordings and videos in the Minuteman Library Network. With more than 500,000 items to choose from, this is a perfect spot for a rainy or snowy day.
