Description - Newton by Thelma Fleishman

Incorporated in 1688, Newton has a history asfascinating as it is long. Newton illustrates the city s development from a community of scattered farmhouses and five small villages in the 1830s to the Garden City of the Commonwealth one hundred years later. Newton s colorful history encompasses many unique features; not only was it one of the country s first railroad suburbs, Newton was home to the Stanley brothers of Steamer fame, to Gen. William Hull, whose reputation suffered during the War of 1812, and, briefly, to Horace Mann and Nathaniel Hawthorne. Newton, however, is best known not for the famous or nearly famous who lived here, but for some of the finest examples of nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century domestic architecture in America."
