Newton, known as the Garden City, is located six miles west of Boston. It lies within the so-called Boston Basin, a tiny structure of the Appalachian Mountain Range. Originally a part of Cambridge, Newton was settled in 1630 and incorporated in 1688 with the first settlement in Newton Corner. The Boston and Worcester Railroads established depots at what later became Newtonville and Auburndale in 1834. Newton is bounded on three sides by the Charles River and is a diverse community comprised of 14 villages, each with a unique character.
The villages of Newton - listed alphabetically - are: Auburndale, Chestnut Hill, Four Corners, Newton Centre, Newton Corner, Newton Highlands, Newton Lower Falls, Newton Upper Falls, Newtonville, Nonantum, Oak Hill, Thomsonville, and Waban. Newton is a vibrant community that is desirable as a place to live and work due to its proximity to Boston, nearness to various highway and public transportation systems, attractive neighborhoods and high property values, well-run municipal government, and a strong, nationally-recognized school system. Newton has well maintained parks, bicycle and fitness trails, golf courses, a public pool and lake. From July through October there are two outdoor Farmer's Markets, one on Beacon Street and the other on California Street.
