From the apartment buildings near Boston College to sprawling houses near Newton Wellesley Hospital, there is something for everyone in Newton.
Newton, like the rest of New England is steeped in history. With over 3 burial grounds dedicated to those who served in the Revolutionary war, to having played an important role during the civil war and the underground railroad, to being an important marker in the Boston Marathon; if you love history and want to live around it, Newton is the place to be! Other attractions feature historic buildings that have been converted into public gardens and museums, some examples are the Jackson Homestead which highlight the cities role in the underground railroad, and the Durant-Kenric House which is a farmhouse from the early 1700’s that has been preserved to commemorate our humble beginnings.
