More About Newton, Massachusetts
Newton shares many characteristics with Cambridge, MA. It was first settled in 1630 as part of New Towne and then fully incorporated as an individual town in 1681 on Dec 15. It was formally called Cambridge village before it was renamed Newtown in 1691 and finally modified to Newton in 1766.
The city of Newton became one of America’s earliest suburbs when the earliest rail lines extended to West Newton in 1834. They constructed streetcar lines, creating a favorable environment for transportation expansion and increasing the accessibility of the city. In the 19th century, milling industries started to produce paper, glue and automobiles became affordable for middle-class citizens. A popular village, Oak hill, was known for market gardening, and it was a constituent of Newton. Newton is said to be a patchwork of thirteen villages and has an interesting geographical location as it is surrounded by seven hills. It also shares a border with Waltham, Watertown, Brookline, West Roxbury, Needham, Weston, and Wellesley. It has good proximity to Boston, Cambridge, and this makes it a very desirable location.
