Welcome to Newton

Newton (approx. pop. 85,000) is a suburban city located 7 miles west of center city Boston, situated between the neighborhoods of Brighton and West Roxbury.

Originally settled in 1630, Newton is home to some of Massachusetts’ most famous historical attractions, including Crystal Lake, the East Parish and West Parish Burying Grounds and the Jackson Homestead. Newton, affectionately known as The Garden City, also houses Boston College.
